Anybody know what kind of planes the bus with the plow takes out at the end of the movie just before Clint Eastwood and the rest climb into the JU 87 or 88 and take off for a fantastic getaway? They are two seaters. I think THye have a very long canopy? Just wondering http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

I'm pretty sure that those are Texans (which were a WW2 era US trainer) painted to look like a German fighter. You also see them doubling for Zeros in lots of old movies. And thats a Ju52 they fly off in. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I think this is a worthy topic for my first post http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I remember seeing that film as an impressionable 11 yr old in 1971, nobody explained to me that the gore was special effects. I was gullible enough to think that the actors were dedicated enough to actually have the injuries inflicted.

I'm older now, but probably still as gullible and my IQ is probably no better either http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Don't know why I wanted to share that...........

Hi,

Top film, that, anachronisms and all.

First time I saw it, I thought that the Germans must have been crazy to have a tri-motor bird - it looked so 1920s!

Cheers,
Norris

O/T. I Liked Clint in the Dirty Harry Movies better. Especially the scene where he is getting reamed out by his boss for blowing away the scumbags in the restaurant who attempted to rob the place and take a women hostage. The boss is totally in Harry's face like literally inches away and completely invading Harry's personal space and telling him he can't just go around blowing people away and how he's a dinosaur and relic as a cop and if he has anything to do with it he will have Harry's badge. Then after his tirade he ask's Harry if has anything to say for himself and Harry says:

"Yeah your mouthwash ain't cuttin it"

Total classic. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

Hi,

Clint's best movies had to be 'For a few dollars more' and 'The Good, the Bad and the Ugly'

That bit in 'dollars' where some bandits walk into a church, shoot a set of spurs in the foreground of the shot setting it spinning, then shoot again to stop it to a roar of laughter (and leave a tooth missing) is an absolute cinema classic!

On the original subject: imdb has this trivia:

# The Junkers 52 used in the film was still in use with the Swiss air force at the time. The Swiss also supplied the T-6 Texan trainers posing as "German fighters".

Cheers,
Norris

I thought Richard Burton really made that movie. Clint was good but not nearly as good as Burton IMHO.

Anyone know the name of the blond SS officer? He was a real slime and played his part to the tee.

Thank you Haaskalintu. You are quite right. I did a search on the movie and Anton Diffring played the part of the SS officer.

AT-6 Texans and a borrowed Swissair Ju-52.
Yup, at that time Swissair was still using
Ju-52's commercially.

Terrible movie. Eastwood was better in the
various "spaghetti westerns" and the TV series
"Rawhide".
But his "Dirty Harry" character was also excellent.
One good war movie was "Kelly's Heroes".
That flick did not try to hide behind a sheild
of realism and is a lot of fun (dark humor) mixed with
the horrible reality of war.
Donald Sutherland, Telly Savallis amongst others
did a great job. It was Clint Eastwood at his best.

I particularly liked the scene near the end
where the SS tank commander and Clint salute.
The tank commander started to give the party
salute, caught himself then gave a millitary salute.
