Victory, 1981 film staring Stallone, Michael Caine and Pele with video

As I was looking for more information concerning the whole NASL vs USL mess, I ran into this gem that some of you might remember from the early 80's called "Victory" (Escape to Victory as it was called in the U.K.)

In case you are not familiar with it here is a Synopsis from IMBD:
In World War II, a group of Nazi officers come up with a propaganda event in which an all star Nazi team will play a team composed of Allied Prisoners of War in a Football (Soccer)game. The Prisoners agree, planning on using the game as a means of escape from the camp.
This movie stars a few well known actors and real life football players:

Sylvester Stallone as Captain Robert Hatch
Michael Caine as Capt. John Colby
Pelé as Cpl. Luis Fernandez
Bobby Moore, Osvaldo Ardiles, Paul Van Himst, Kazimierz Deyna, Hallvar Thoresen, Mike Summerbee, Co Prins, Russell Osman, John Wark, Søren Lindsted, Kevin O'Callaghan

The following video is on google videos. It starts off a little dark but clears up after 2 minutes. Check it out, its worth it!
