Directed by Anthony Mann
Starring Kirk Douglas, Richard Harris, Ulla Jacobsson, Michael Redgrave, Anton Diffring
Anthony Mann’s next-to-last movie, The Heroes Of Telemark (1965) is a based-on-fact secret-mission-in-the-snow picture in the Where Eagles Dare (1969) vein. It’s quite good — and it’ll certainly benefit from the leap to Blu-Ray. The skiing sequences, with Olympic ski coach Helge Stoylen and his students serving as camera operators, are terrific.
Sony has recently announced that it’s coming. Perfect for some snowy night around the fire.
