The body count is high when Richard Burton and Clint Eastwood take on the Nazis in this adventure classic. Ranks as one of the all time best “men on a mission” films, right up there with THE GUNS OF NAVARONE and THE DIRTY DOZEN.
Based on a novel and screenplay by Alistair MacLean, the film has Burton and Eastwood attempting to rescue an American general from a castle fortress high in the Alps. All of this is just an excuse for a series of incredible action scenes, including a nail biting fight on top of a cable car. Clint kills more people in this film than in all of his other films combined. And that’s just fine with us as they are all Nazis.
