They were goldbricks until they found out about the gold bricks – a fortune in Nazi-confiscated bullion! Clint Eastwood reunites with the director of his Where Eagles Dare for the action-filled and tongue-in-cheek tale of GIs who decide to get something extra out of the war.
Eastwood’s Lt. Kelly masterminds a scheme to slip behind enemy lines and steal the loot. The film’s co-stars include a trio on the verge of big-time TV success: Carroll O’Connor, Telly Savalas and Gavin MacLeod. Plus, Don Rickles plays the expectedly outspoken Crapgame. And in the same year as his star-making role in M*A*S*H, Donald Sutherland is Oddball, World War II’s only hippie. Dig it!
