    Where Eagles Dare.

    I thought that the movie was good. I think Clint Eastwood ( a very well known actor here in America, I bet he is common with you all?) did a good job. I have seen it a few times and I thought it was a good movie:happy:

He of Dirty Harry fame, Gran Torino, Bridges of Madison County, Sands of Iwo Jima, Flags of Our Fathers, The Outlaw Josey Wales, Million Dollar Baby, Space Cowboys, Paint Your Wagon, Pink Cadillac, Any Which Way But Loose, Kelly's Heroes, Unforgiven, Play Misty for Me, Hang 'em High, The Good The Bad and the Ugly etc? Never heard of him...:becky:

    I do like the film.....until that damn helicopter scene. Why? When most other things seem pretty authentic, why have a helicopter.

    Yes I know existed during the war but not anything like that!!!!

    Because it's well named (Schloss Adler), only an eagle could get to it (or cable car or helicopter!)!

  12. With all this fawning over Eastwood, I'm surprised all you wonderful Limeys haven't said anything about the other great actor in that film, Sir Richard Burton. :boom: One of the great actors, voices and screen presences of all time.

    Remember that they picked Sir Richard to end the film, The Longest Day: "... he's got them on the wrong feet!" No one else could have delivered that like like Burton!

    Ooigh! who are you calling a limey?

    Although I have lots of "Limey" friends, calling an Aussie (me) a Limey is like saying all Texans are from Austin.

    Anyway, the novel was penned in two weeks especially for Burton to play the lead role.

    And Maclean also wrote the screen play.
