I'm suprised that at least so type of a DVD has been released of this classic war film. For those unfamiliar with it, it stars Clint Eastwood and Richard Burton as World War 2 commandos sent to infiltrate a German Castle in the Alps to rescue an American general with important plans to the invasion of Europe. But thats only part of the story. This movie, although from 1969, still has many great action scenes and is one of the best fictional World War 2 movies, as well as an Eastwood classic. Aparently, Warner owns the rights to it, and it can often be seen on TNT, TBS, and TCM. So far, not even a barebones release has come out in the past few years with this format. There was a LD release svereal years ago thats OOP, but this great film deserves a DVD release of some sort. It could at least include a commentary by Eastwood, since this was an early film for him, and helped put him in the international spot light as an action star(his character in this film kills more people than any other Eastwood character). At the very least they could include a widescreen transfer and mono or stereo sound, but thats at the very least. If you have seen it, you can notice that it is in need of restoration and remastering since its over 25 years old. I guess we have to wait and see, but it being from Warner who has an up and down history with these kind of releases, we at least know what the packaging will be like.
