Rating:
PG

Where Eagles Dare is a classic World War II action movie in every sense. Filmed high in the primeval paradise that is the Austrian Alps, Where Eagles Dare takes the audience both physically and mentally to the core of Nazi controlled territory. Major John Smith (Richard Burton) is a British officer who must rescue a US Army Brigadier General from the Nazis before he gives away any D-Day details. While assembling his crew, his superior makes a surprising addition: Lieutenant Schaffer (Clint Eastwood), an American officer. British Intelligence agent, Mary Ellison (Mary Ure), balances out the crew on their mission. Cloak and dagger antics permeate this picture, which all lead to the Secret Service stronghold, Eagle Castle, and the memorable action packed scene involving Lt. Schaffer and a cable car rigged with explosives! This was one of the first movies to use the now common green screen technology for special effects.
