    A week ago I saw Clint Eastwood's Where Eagles Dare on tv and one question came into my mind.

    Many people want this film on DVD. It's been talked about before and the word was it needed a lot of restore work done. I have it on Laserdisc and the image doesn't look that bad. MGM just gave us "The Vikings" (a much older film)and did a nice job so maybe it's coming soon.

    A search for "where eagles dare" will turn up quite a bit of information. In short, as far as I can recall, this is in need of restoration. Last fall, Bill Hunt had it listed as a rumored MGM SE for this year, but the general consensus of opinion now seems to be that this title is controlled by Warner.

    I wish Warner would've released all of Eastwood's movies in one big set so I wouldn't have to wait to complete my collection. Still MIA from Warner's vaults: Firefox, Tightrope, Pink Cadillac, Where Eagles Dare (if the above info is correct). [​IMG] I was glad to get his Clyde movies this week though!
