The feature film of Alistair Mac Lean's famous story starring Richard Burton as Major John Smith, Clint Eastwood as Lt. Morris Schaffer, Mary Ure as Mary Ellison, Michael Hordern as Vice-Admiral Rolland, Patrick Wymark as Col. Wyatt-Turner
Seven paratroopers, led by a British intelligence officer, are sent on a seemingly impossible mission. They must enter the almost impregnable Nazi strong-hold 'Castle of the Eagles' - and rescue a high-ranking American officer. An already dangerous task is further threatened by a traitor in the group. This World War II adventure film proved one of the greatest box-office successes of all time, thanks to its ingenious script, spectacular special effects and exciting stunt work.
