    Classic Movie. Especially for its time, excellent recreations of war. The overhead shots of the scenes through the streets of that village are incredible.

    Terrific cast we well.
  4. And, on his birthday, Sean Connery as an Irishman in the British army.

    One of the greatest closing lines in movie history: "I wonder who won?"
  6. Sorry, GW.
    The final line of TLD, delivered by Robert Mitchum, is "OK, run me up the hill, son."
    The scene with the two Richards -- Beymer and Burton -- is a great one, though.

    Dang, you're right. Had totally forgotten about Mitchum's line. Delete the "closing" out of my original post, and I think it would still have some validity.
  8. I just love the way Burton says, "Ack-ack."
    Makes it sound like Shakespeare.

    The Duke after learning he has a compound fracture of his leg.

    Anybody know how they got that shot of the troops running through the streets toward the casino? It doesn't seem like a helicopter and I don't know how they'd get a crane that far.
