- Where Eagles Dare came
about because Richard Burton, in need of a hit
following a run of box-office
failures, was told by his children
that he should play a 'real hero'.
- Clint Eastwood
was reluctant to take second
billing after Burton, but an
$800,000 fee changed his mind.
- As such a valuable part of
the production, and because
much of the action was quite
dangerous, Eastwood wasn't
allowed to do his own stunts;
frustrated, he dubbed the
film Where Doubles Dare.
Richard Burton and his troop of elite
commandos parachute behind
enemy lines to infiltrate a
Bavarian castle. Clint Eastwood's
laconic assassin, the obligatory
traitor in their midst, a devious
final twist and a load of Nazis
who can't shoot straight are the
winning ingredients in this World
War II Boy's Own adventure,
scripted by Alistair MacLean.

- Richard Burton stars as Major John Smith, a British agent during WWII who is in charge a group of six Allied soldiers given the task of rescuing an American general--who is reportedly in possession of the plans for D-Day--from a seemingly impregnable German fortress located high in the Bavarian Alps. Assisting Smith is the sole American in the operative, Lieutenant Morris Schaffer (Clint Eastwood), a fierce soldier skilled with an array of deadly weapons. As the men penetrate the fortress, facing an endless supply of German soldiers, it becomes apparent that some members of the small Allied team may not be who them seem to be. Full of thrilling action set pieces, the screenplay was written by Alistair MacLean, adapted from his own best selling novel.
