Product Description

Box set containing three popular war movies. In 'Where Eagles Dare' (1968), during World War II, seven Allied agents are selected to rescue an American general from the impenetrable German fortress Schloss Adler. In charge of the team is British Major Smith (Richard Burton), with American Lieutenant Schaffer (Clint Eastwood) as second in command. Parachuting into the enemy territory in German uniforms, the squad discover one of their number dead on arrival, and Smith suspects that he may have a traitor amongst his unit. In 'Kelly's Heroes' (1970), during World War II in occupied France, a group of soldiers led by Kelly (Clint Eastwood) capture a German general. He reveals the location of a bank housing 14,000 bars of Nazi gold, which Kelly and his men set out to steal. The only problem is that the bank lies thirty miles behind enemy lines. Finally, in 'The Dirty Dozen' (1967) twelve Death Row convicts are selected by Major Reisman (Lee Marvin) for a suicide mission. With the aid of his assistant, Sergeant Bowren (Richard Jaeckel), Reisman gradually moulds his gang of murderers, rapists, thieves and psychotics into a tough fighting unit. He leads them into occupied France in an attempt to infiltrate a chateau where the Nazi top brass are holding a summit. Telly Savalas, Charles Bronson, John Cassavetes and a then-unknown Donald Sutherland are among the dozen.

5.0 out of 5 stars No to be missed 5 Sep 2006
If you like war films then these 3 area a real treat.

Where Eagles Dare with Richard Burton and Clint Eastwood, killing hundreds of Germans while rescuing a fake American general and exposing a traitor.

Kellys Heros-again with Clint Eastwood and an outstanding performance by Donald Sutherland as a tank commander. Eastwood captures a German who lets slip where a fortune in gold is being hidden which Clint decides he is going to liberate. He brings in armour support with Sutherland and the small group grow. Great action scenes.

The Dirty Dozen- again with Donald Sutherland and an all star cast. If you haven't seen it yet, where have you been.

3 of the best.

5.0 out of 5 stars All of them great laid back films 30 Dec 2012
My personal favourite, if I I had to choose one, is the Dirty Dozen. Very loosely based on something actually 'brainstormed' by the allies but never actually realised (probably a good thing) this is anti establishment fun. The moral payoff is that most of the condemned get killed anyway. No one explains why the Military Ploiceman gets roped into going but that just makes it funnier. A great cast and some great lines.

Kellys - excellent
Eagles - excellent
