Join us for a hilarious scene-by-scene commentary by Geoff Dyer of cult classic Second World War film Where Eagles Dare. With its historical inaccuracies, camp SS officers and inexplicable plot twists, starring a magnificent, bleary-eyed Richard Burton and a coolly anachronistic Clint Eastwood, Where Eagles Dare is the apex of 1960s war movies, by turns enjoyable and preposterous. ‘Broadsword Calling Danny Boy’ is Geoff Dyer’s tribute to the film he has loved since childhood: a scene-by-scene analysis taking us from its snowy, Teutonic opening credits to its vertigo-inducing climax.
