Based on a true story, The Heroes of Telemark is a war drama released in 1965 and directed by Anthony Mann.

World War II is raging and the German forces are using a hydroelectric plant in German-occupied Norway to produce heavy water so they can create a nuclear bomb.

Rolf Pedersen is a physics professor in Norway who is drawn into the fray by Norwegian resistance leader Knut Straud.  Straud and his fellow resistance fighters are determined to prevent the Germans from completing their mission.

Pedersen and Straud are smuggled into England to study plans of the hydroelectric plant and plan a raid on the structure.  A group of England’s Royal Engineers are deployed to sabotage the plant but are killed in an air crash, and it is up to Pedersen and Straud to gather their forces and stop the Germans from obtaining the bomb.
