      • 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.

        Ages when filming:

        • Richard Burton | 42
        • Clint Eastwood | 37

      • 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.
