Where Eagles Dare

WHERE EAGLES DARE. British 1968 World War II action film distributed by MGM, directed by Brian G Hutton and shot on location in Austria and Bavaria. Alistair MacLean wrote the novel and the screenplay at the same time. It was his first screenplay and both film & book became commercial successes. The film involved some of the top moviemaking professionals of the time and is considered to be a classic. Major contributors included Hollywood stuntman Yakima Canutt (who as second-unit director) shot most of the action scenes and British stuntman Alf Joint (who doubled for Richard Burton) in sequences such as the fight on top of the cable car. Award winning conductor and composer Ron Goodwin wrote the film score and future Oscar nominee Arthur Ibbetson worked on the cinematography. The film is noted for the phrase "Broadsword calling Danny Boy", used by Richard Burton several times throughout. It took $21 million USD from a production budget of $7.7 million USD.
