WHERE EAGLES DARE (1968)

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.
