Where Eagles Dare is a classic World War II action movie dating from 1969. A British commando team led by Major Smith must rescue a US Army Brigadier General from the Nazis before he gives away any D-Day details. But there's a surprising addition: Lt. Schaffer, an American Ranger officer; and what only Smith knows is that there's yet another agent along for the mission, his lover, Mary Ellison (Mary Ure). Cloak and dagger antics permeate this movie, centred on the notorious Schloss Adler (the Castle of the Eagles), where nothing is quite what it seems and almost no-one is to be trusted. Madly complicated, utterly straight-faced as it moves from one preposterous situation to the next, this box-office smash seems to have been intended by writer Alastair Maclean as tongue-in-cheek self-parody.
