The Odessa File is a 1974 thriller film directed by Ronald Neame and starring Jon Voight. It is an adaptation of the 1972 novel of the same name by Frederick Forsyth.

Peter Miller (Voight), a German freelance reporter, discovers that multiple Nazi war criminals have escaped prosecution following World War II thanks to an organization known as ODESSA. Miller decides to infiltrate the organization in order to prevent a cabal of former SS officers from executing a plan to kill thousands of people.


The following weapons were used in the film The Odessa File:

Walther PPK

Eduard Roschmann (Maximilian Schell) keeps a Walther PPK concealed in a drawer in his desk. He fires at Peter Miller (Jon Voight) near the end of the film.
