Our Score
Clint Eastwood and Telly Savalas head the cast of this enjoyable if occasionally silly adventure yarn about a group of maverick GIs who decide to fill a lull in the Second World War by knocking off a hoard of German bullion in occupied France. Savalas and the eccentric Donald Sutherland set to their assignment with gusto, while Eastwood remains as cool and laconic as ever - even as half of Europe blows up around him. This was never destined to win prestigious prizes at international film festivals, but, despite its flaws, there are more than a few entertaining moments.


A rebellious American soldier fighting in occupied France learns from a captive German officer the whereabouts of a fortune in Nazi gold. Recruiting the aid of three fellow soldiers, he puts together a daring plan to penetrate enemy lines to get their hands on the bullion. Second World War adventure, starring Clint Eastwood, Telly Savalas, Donald Sutherland, Don Rickles and Harry Dean Stanton.
