A great movie that is easy to enjoy again and again. Richard Burton and Clint Eastwood make an unlikely, but excellent team set on literally storming the castle, behind enemy lines, during World War II. The film is an incredible example of how it is possible to make one of the best action movies of all time without any modern day special effects. The locations give the film a realistic backdrop to a story that is more like a classic serial. Where Eagles Dare is filled with explosions, twists, great escapes and characters you love to hate (the Nazi SS for example). An outstanding soundtrack compliments the movie perfectly. Good versus evil and the Allies win against the Nazis in this one too. About a decade late on arriving to DVD, but worth the wait.

Where Eagles Dare
Part of Clint Eastwood collection is misleading. Made in 1969, Clint is a quiet second eclipsed by Richard Burton's effective performance as the leader of the team. Eastwood is an American Ranger sent on a British mission behind enemy lines because he's American. Burton works behind the scenes w/ a female agent unknownst to the team. In fact as the members of the team die and only Burton knows they are murdered the who reason for the mission -- get the general and get out -- is called into question.

The members of the team were picked because of their black ops training or were they? As the story unfolds and the mystery increases the movie becomes more and more fascinating. Burton is phenomenal as always and Eastwood shows glimmers of the actor he will become. The support cast are well-know British actors you will recognize.

the plot is convoluted and spell-binding as the story changes from scene to scene until finally all is revealed and there is a exciting climax. Well written, well acted and well directed. Add this to your war/espionage collection.

"Do me a favour, will you? Next time you have one of these things, keep it an all-British operation."

The above is said at the end of this thrilling World War II action movie starring Richard Burton (1925 to 1984) and Clint Eastwood.

The title of this movie "Where Eagles Dare" comes from (Act 1 Scene 3) of William Shakespeare's history play "Richard III" (circa 1593): "The world is grown so bad, the wren makes prey where eagles dare not perch."

It was directed by the same person who directed "Kelly's Heroes" (starring Clint Eastwood). Alistair MacLean (known for his fictional thrillers or adventure stories) wrote the novel of the same name and this movie's screenplay at the same time.

The mission of eight military agents (one of them a women [Mary Ure, 1933 to 1975], all of them British except one who's American) is straight-forward: get in, get or rescue an American General, and get out ALIVE.

The problem is that the American General is being held at the German Schloss Adler, the "Castle of the Eagles." This fortress is only accessible by cable car (or helicopter).

This mission is led by Major Smith (Burton) with Lieutenant Schaffer (Eastwood) doing the dirty work. Problems plague the mission right from the beginning.

You'll have to pay attention when watching this movie or you'll get confused. It has many twists and turns (that really kept me interested). Schaffer says it best when Smith reveals some important information:

"Major, right now, you got me as confused as I ever hope to be."

All actors do a good job in their roles but I have to give special kudos to Richard Burton as the leader of the mission. He gives a magnificent performance.

Years ago reading a history book i thought the assassination plot of hitler would make an interesting shoot...and years later of all people somewhat uncharacteristically Tom Cruise took up the challenge, going from movie star to character actor starring in a film. People found him different, and its a change of pace, and he may have found it unfamiliar terrain, but he received much media attention worldwide, and more intense scrutiny as an actor than the other roles he plays..sometimes tabloid nonsense takes away from an actor's reputation. Here we have the war again with richard burton sans liz who is a great actor by the way in films like night of the iguana and wild swans and other films with clint eastwood in a character type role also which is also a change of space, and there's a spy side plot and the location of a building at film's end, but there is much visual scenery beautifully photographed, many special effects,stunts,burnings,...here we have a visual movie with some acting and big stars. The movie is almost dramatized through imagery like a silent film. There is not much dialogue...and the imagery brings the scenes together but it's not really violent as in many films today and the climbing sequences and mountain peaks are interesting. Burton in a commentary compares eastwood to gary cooper in a more favourable light, and he could have worked more in europe but probably never took up the offers. He made two later war type films Kelly's heroes and Heartbreak Ridge for the interested viewer(forms part of clint's retrospective multidisc package)...Burton is great as always...he's always a joy to watch and brings something special in all his films, not only Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
