They were goldbricks until they found out about the gold bricks – a fortune in Nazi-confiscated bullion! Clint Eastwood reups with the director of his Where Eagles Dare for the action-filled and tongue-in-cheek tale of GIs who decide to get something extra out of the war. Eastwood’s title character masterminds a scheme to slip behind enemy lines and steal the loot. Co-stars include a trio on the verge of big-time TV success: Carroll O’Connor, Telly Savalas and Gavin MacLeod. Plus, Don Rickles plays the expectedly outspoken Crapgame. And in the same year as his starmaking M*A*S*H, Donald Sutherland is Oddball, World War II’s only hippie. Dig it!

It's funny, touching, occasionally suspenseful, and basically a great movie for everyone over the age of 8. One for all the family.
Its outstanding cast and story makes the nearly 2½ hour "Heroes" seem to fly by. Here, Eastwood is Pvt. Kelly-- his get-rich-quick scheme involves going behind enemy lines to "liberate" millions in gold bars being held in a bank. The catch: three deadly Tiger tanks that guard the enemy's hoard.
To realize his plan Kelly enlists the aid of platoon MSgt. Big Joe (Savalas), conniving supply officer SSgt. Crapgame (Rickles) and hippie-ish tank commander Sgt. Oddball (Sutherland). Others in on the heist are Pvt. Little Joe (Margolin), Pvt. Willard (Stanton), diminutive Pvt. Babra (Collins) and Oddball's pessimistic tank mechanic, Moriarty (MacLeod).
Things are at a standstill all over the front, but when Kelly and crew make a headlong dash for the cash, Maj. Gen. Colt (O'Connor) takes it to be a lone unit assaulting the Germans, so he responds by sending all his men forward. Now Kelly's heroes have to reach an occupied French town, defeat three heavily-armed tanks, grab the loot and clear out before Gen. Colt arrives. To do so, they call upon an unlikely ally. (Watch closely for an unusual cameo from director John Landis-- as Sister Rosa Stigmata!)
