Description

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!

  • Classic

    A classic entertainment escape movie. Completely implausible, but wholly enjoyable. All the big name actors from the 60's and early 70's are here. This is the original "Three Kings."
  • Cool movie, a little too long

    I just saw this for the first time and I thought it was ok. The concept is a little like Three Kings, which is a lot better.
  • Good movie bad price

    The only reason I posted this is cause iTunes just introduced an Eastwood 10 film pack deal for $45 or so amount. But I already own American Sniper and Trouble with the Curb so I cannot buy that deal. And I am further penalized by the fact that each movie alone in this 10 pack is high priced on their own. For example Kelly’s Heroes is $13 by itself. So why is it that someone who may have never even bought a movie in the past on here gets the better deal? Should it not be the opposite - rewarded for past purchases?
  • Great great movie

    Saw this movie when I was a kid, ever since then I have watched this over and over, I think more than anyone. Plenty of action, funny, and adventure with no cgi, movies nowadays can’t replicate without CGI etc. Must see, enjoy!!!

    I actually saw the movie when it was originally release out in theaters before the huge 70 mm screens! I was still in grade school, but I really enjoyed it when I saw it. Similar themed Movies that followed used Kelly's Heroes as an archetype for their basis and composition. Take for example "Three Kings" with George Clooney, ICE T, and Walberg...very similar..but set during the first Gulf War " Desert Storm"..,

    Take a WWII action film and blend it with a hilarious comedy and you get Kelly’s Heroes. A group of burned out GIs find out about millions in Nazi gold and decide to go behind enemy lines to “liberate” the gold. The antics of the crew, such as Oddball (played to perfection by Donald Sutherland), Crap game (Don Rickles), Big Joe (Telly Savalas), and Kelly (Clint Eastwood playing, sort of, the straight man trying to keep the plan together) are hilarious but the best comedy might have to be Carroll O’Conner who plays a general who thinks the crew are motivated by sheer patriotism and wants to pin a medal on the chest of every single man involved in getting his offensive back on track.
