'Broadsword Calling Danny Boy' : Watching 'Where Eagles Dare'

$ 16.00

A warm, very funny tribute to a classic 1960s action movie (starring Clint Eastwood), from "one of our most original writers" (New York).
A thrilling Alpine adventure headlined by a magnificent, bleary-eyed Richard Burton and a dynamically lethargic Clint Eastwood, Where Eagles Dare is the apex of 1960s war movies, by turns enjoyable and preposterous. 'Broadsword Calling Danny Boy' is Geoff Dyer's hilarious tribute to a film he has loved since childhood: it's a scene-by-scene analysis--or should that be send-up?--taking us from the movie's snowy, Teutonic opening credits to its vertigo-inducing climax.
