Where Eagles Dare (1968)
Was thinking of some old movies that I watched recently and enjoyed, and the first one that jumped to mind was - Where Eagles Dare.
Where Eagles Dare is one classic movie. The story is about a group of british and american (a.k.a allied) officers who raid a nazi stronghold somewhere in the cold alpine to recuse an American General, during WWII. What makes up the suspense is the presence of a traitor in the group. The story, originally a novel, was written by Alistair MacLean and the movie stars a very handsome Richard Burton, a very young Clint Eastwood and a score of others.
The movie has a definite charm and a lot of thrills too. Stunts on the alpine cable car are memorable, there is a motorcycle chase with eastwood and burton set a trail of explosives which was very good and ....nail biting too *wink*. Its a all time feel good war movie and u shouldnt miss this one.
