Richard Burton and Clint Eastwood in "Where Eagles Dare" (1968)

Where Eagles Dare (1968) Directed by Brian G. Hutton. Richard Burton as Major Smith and Clint Eastwood as Lieutenant Schaffer

Smith: Lieutenant, drop that gun.
Schaffer: What?
Smith: Drop that gun and sit down.
Schaffer: What the hell are you talking about?
Smith: Sit down!
Schaffer: (sits) Major, if I live to be a hundred…
Smith: You’ll do nothing, Lieutenant. In your idiom, you’re… a punk… and a pretty second rate punk at that.

  1. Well-paced action war film with excellent performances and a memorable Ron Goodwin score.

  2. A childhood favorite. As I said I think in the Force 10 From Navarone thread, I was a huge fan of Alistair MacLean as a lad and this was one of his best books.
