Kelly's Heroes [1970]

Kelly's Heroes [1970]

A classic war film depite being full of historical inaccuracies and stereotypes (especially the German Tiger commander and Oddball's Hippy 20 years before Hippies were about) but ignore this and treat it as it was intended, as a tongue firmly in cheek wartime adventure.

Clint Eastward is the hero Kelly, out to get his hands on a stash of Nazi gold in the chaos of post D-Day Europe. He has a plan but to succeed he ends up needing the help of an ever increasing number of misfits and ends up inadvertently causing an advance. It has some classic tense moments such as a traverse across a minefield and an urban tank duel. Saving Private Ryan it isn’t , but great fun it is.
