Product Description

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. Alistair Maclean wrote the screenplay and the film is reported to be amongst director Quentin Tarantino's favourites.

Synopsis

Commandos, posing as German soldiers, parachute into a city to rescue asupposed allied General from a Nazi hideaway fortress that can only be reached by cable car.

If the transfer of this film was a showcase for Blu Ray no one would buy any. Having seen this film in 70mm years ago I know what quality is possible and this disc falls well short of that. So if you already own the DVD - save your money - as this disc will not enhance your enjoyment, in fact I think it's worse. Maybe next time the studio will get it right and even put the intermission back in.

Basically this is a five star movie on a one star disc which for me dispels the idea that a Blu Ray disc, by implication, is better quality.

I cannot see that the June 2010 Blu Ray is any better than the dvd version. In cases it is very dark and doesn't seem as good as the DVD! I think the same print must have been used and no effort seems to have been made to remaster or clean up. What a shame. Where Eagles Dare is one of my favourite WW2 films. Why issue this?

This Blu-Ray print has the poorest picture quality I have ever seen on Blu-Ray, washed out colours and low contrast. The recent (not necessarily the current) versions on DVD have far superior picture quality i.e. better colour rendition and contrast.

"Broadsword calling Danny Boy." Say that line to anyone over the age of twenty five and they will immediately know which film you are talking about, possibly the greatest war movie of all time. No matter how many times I see this film, I never tire of it.
Everything about it is right on the money, excellent musical score, terriffic performances from Richard Burton and Clint Eastwood and some great action sequences. Check out Burton's fight atop the cable car or Eastwoods shoot out with the Nazi's. These two action sequences stand up to anything Hollywood can produce today and this film is thirty years old!!!
The best thing about "Where Eagles Dare" is it actually acknowledges that it wasn't just America that won the war, in this, the Brits actually play a vital role. Horrah!
That old saying; "They don't make them like they used to," may be well worn and overused, but in this case it is true. A wonderful film.

The perfect gift for all movie enthusiasts is THE ROMA VICTRIX WINE BEAKERCalix Imperium, Roma Victrix Pewter wine beaker

In the tradition of films like The Guns of Navarone comes this World War II Adventure Film. Both are based on Alistair MacLean novels and have more in common with spy thrillers then any war drama. Where Eagles Dare in particular reminded me of the various James Bond films of the era, especially On Her Majesty's Secret Service for obvious reasons. OHMSS would actually come out the following year.

Burton makes for an unexpectedly engaging action hero and seems intriguingly comfortable, especially during a brutal fight on top of a moving cable car that still makes me wince even after all these viewings. Eastwood, who had not quite hit the A-list as yet, shows all of his qualities and also seems very comfortable as a straightforward action hero who doesn't get much to say but makes up for it by gunning down half the Nazis that were probably on the planet.

You don't put Where Eagles Dare on looking for a realistic portrayal of WW2 - you put it on to have two and a half hours of cracking action. It's one of the very best war action films ever made and you even get the lovely Mary Ure wielding a machine-gun. What more could you ask for?

Format: DVD
Over 40 years later, and this film still gives 2½ hours of great entertainment.

"The mission is clear. Get the general. Get out. Commandos charged with freeing a U.S. general from an Alphine fortress should also be told to trust nothing - including the search-and-rescue orders just issued. Richard Burton and Clint Eastwood go Where Eagles Dare in this twisty World War II thriller written by action master Alistair MacLean (The Guns of Navarone, Ice Station Zebra) and directed by Brian G. Hutton (Kelly's Heroes). Known for fiery dramatic roles, Burton ventures into the realm of movie pyrotechnics with dynamic efficiency. And Eastwood's cool-fire presence heightens one searing action sequence after another. The film became Eastwood's then-largest hit and it's studio's #1 moneymaker of the year."

Format: DVD
WED is the most entertaining war movie ever made. The great Burton & Eastwood infiltrate a snowy German castle fortess in order to perform a suicide rescue mission. The movie has everything- sneaking into the castle on top of a cable car (check the vertigo downhill shots) climbing up the side of the castle on ropes, Clint's cool shootout with two machine guns two handed, Burton's famous fight on top of the cable car. it's a rip roaring adventure to say the least, they don't make em like this anymore. Also starring is 'Ingrid Pitt' ding dong say no more. If you like WW11 movies & alot of action then get this DVD now. it also includes an On Location programme plus the original trailor. It's a wonderful movie.
