KELLY’S HEROES (1970) GEM, 3.30PM, PG, WAR

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

Rous­ing war clas­sic with a good dash of hu­mour and an im­pres­sive cast com­pris­ing Don­ald Suther­land, Clint East­wood, Don Rick­les and Telly Savalas. Set dur­ing World War II, an Amer­i­can pla­toon hap­pens upon a se­cret stash of gold bars and sets out to pull the rug from un­der the Ger­mans. De­spite the com­i­cal edge, the set de­sign and props sug­gest au­then­tic­ity was high on the pro­duc­tion’s list of pri­or­i­ties. Younger view­ers might recog­nise the strik­ing re­sem­blance it shares with its equally mar­vel­lous mod­ern­day like­ness, Three­Kings. Also stars Car­roll O’Con­nor. ★★★★★
