Count Five and Die is a 1957 British war drama produced by Zonic Productions and released in the USA by the Twentieth Century-Fox Film Corporation. It was directed by Victor Vicas, produced by Ernest Gartside with the screenplay by Jack Seddon and David Pursall. It starred Jeffrey Hunter, Nigel Patrick, Annemarie Düringer and David Kossoff.

Filmed in London, the story concerns the feeding of misinformation to German Intelligence about the exact location of the D-Day landings in 1944. Captain Bill Ranson (Jeffrey Hunter) and Major Julien Howard (Nigel Patrick) are two allied intelligence officers posing as documentary film makers in the occupied Low Countries. Their concerns centre on the credentials of Rolande Hertog (Annemarie Düringer), a new recruit to the intelligence service recently arrived from Holland.[3]
