"WHERE EAGLES DARE" During World War II a British aircraft is shot down and crashes in Nazi held territory. The Germans capture the only survivor, an American General, and take him to the nearest SS headquarters. Unknown to the Germans the General has full knowledge of the D-Day operation. The British decide that the General must not be allowed to divulge any details of the Normandy landing at all cost and order Major John Smith to lead a crack commando team to rescue him. Amongst the team is an American Ranger, Lieutenant Schaffer, who is puzzled by his inclusion in an all British operation. When one of the team dies after the parachute drop, Schaffer suspects that Smith's mission has a much more secret objective. Summary, the mission is clear. Get in. Get the general. Get out. Commandos charged with freeing a U.S. general from an Alpine fortress should also be told to trust nothing - including the search-and-rescue orders just issued.

"THE GUNS OF NAVARONE"Gregory Peck, David Niven and Anthony Quinn star as a team of Allied military specialists recruited for a dangerous but imperative mission: to infiltrate a Nazi-occupied fortress and disable two long-range field guns so that 2,000 trapped British soldiers may be rescued. Faced with an unforgiving sea voyage, hazardous terrain, and the possibility of a traitor among them, the team must overcome the impossible without losing their own lives.Based on the novel by Alistair Maclean.

"FORCE TEN FROM NAVARONE" This is supposed to be a sequel to the movie, Guns of navarone. Mallory and Miller are charged with identifying a spy known as "Nicolai" , who appeared briefly in The Guns of Navarone. (In the film The Guns of Navarone, Nicolai was the identity of the laundry boy who was suspected to be listening in on private conversations and almost killed for it.) "Nicolai" is now thought to be disguised among the Yugoslavian partisans, under the guise of a Major Lescovar (Franco Nero). The hunt takes them to Yugoslavia, where they team up with "Force 10", a sabotage unit led by Lt. Colonel Barnsby (played by Harrison Ford). Stowing away is an African-American prisoner, played by Weathers. The sabotage goal is to destroy a key bridge because it is determined to be indestructible by explosives. The team instead chooses to blow up a dam which will then destroy the bridge with tons of water. The film ends after the heroes realize they ended up on the wrong side of the river and had no hopes of rejoining the partisans. The forest would soon be crawling with Germans, and Miller didn't have any more matches (a minor comic story line). The movie fades to black as the heroes begin their long journey home.

"KELLY'S HEROES" During World War II, Kelly (Eastwood), a former lieutenant demoted to private as a scapegoat, captures a German colonel in Intelligence and gets him drunk to try to get information. Before he is killed by a German tank, the drunken prisoner of war blurts out an interesting tidbit: there is a cache of 14,000 gold bars stored in a bank vault 30 miles behind enemy lines. Kelly recruits a group of soldiers on R&R to sneak off and steal it. They include a skeptical master sergeant, "Big Joe" (Savalas); a greedy and opportunistic Supply sergeant, "Crapgame" (Rickles); a proto-hippie Sherman tank commander, "Oddball" (Sutherland); and a number of stereotypical "grunts." The men are presented as competent, if weary veterans; their motivations are more cynical and self-serving than patriotic. The obvious antagonists are the Germans. However, it quickly becomes clear that the motley band's own superior officers are just as much an obstacle, especially when the unauthorized private enterprise raid inadvertently initiates an Allied advance. Kelly's men race to reach the bank before a clueless Major General Colt (O'Connor) can interfere with their scheme. Ironically, while there is combat with the Germans, ultimately, it is the cooperation of a German Tiger tank commander (Karl-Otto Alberty) that proves vital to achieving their goal.

"THE DIRTY DOZEN" An Army Major who likes to butt heads with his superiors, is being "given" a new assignment, to train 12 men who are either sentenced to death or life imprisonment, to go behind enemy lines raid a chateau that the Germans are using as an R&R center and kill as enemy officers as they can and disrupt the German chain of command. Now he not only has to train them; he has to get them to start acting like a unit. And when a Colonel whom the Major has been having the most trouble with reports to the Generals that his unit is not working out, the Major asks the General to try them out by having them participate in a war game. If they don't succeed they will be sent back to prison to face their sentences.

"12 ANGRY MEN" At the end of a murder trial in New York City, the twelve jurors retire to consider the verdict. The man in the dock is a young Puerto Rican accused of killing his father, and eleven of the twelve jurors do not hesitate in finding him guilty. However, one of the jurors (Henry Fonda), reluctant to send the youngster to his death without any debate, returns a vote of not guilty. From this single event, the jurors begin to re-evaluate the case, as they look at the murder - and themselves - in a fresh light.

"INHERIT THE WIND" Teacher B.T. Cates is arrested for teaching Darwin's theories. Famous lawyer Henry Drummond defends him; fundamentalist politician Matthew Brady prosecutes. This is a very thinly disguised rendition of the 1925 "Scopes monkey trial" with debates between Clarence Darrow and William Jennings Bryan taken largely from the transcripts. Starring: Spencer Tracy, Fredric March, Gene Kelly, Dick York, Donna Anderson, Harry Morgan.

"THE WAGES OF FEAR" Dozens of unemployed foreigners languish in a tiny oil town in an unnamed South American country. Ex-criminal Monsieur Jo (Charles Vanel) arrives as broke as the others, expecting help from his old pal and fellow Frenchman Mario (Yves Montand). They put the touch on Mario's roommate Luigi (Folco Lulli), while Mario mistreats Linda (Véra Clouzot), the maid and chattel of the local saloon keeper. Then opportunity knocks. The all-powerful Southern Oil Company needs 200 gallons of nitroglycerine transported over near-impassable roads up to where a drilling fire has killed dozens and threatened a slowdown in oil production. SOC foreman Bill O'Brien (William Tubbs) decides to hire bums from the village - they have no union and nobody will miss them should they get blown to bits. O'Brien's experts think that particular fate is almost a certainty.

"THE GREAT ESCAPE" The Great Escape is based on the true story of a group of Allied prisoners of war who managed to escape from an allegedly impenetrable Nazi prison camp during World War II. At the beginning of the film, the Nazis gather all their most devious and troublesome POWs and place them at a new prison camp, which was designed to be impervious to escapes. Immediately, the prisoners develop a scheme where they will leave the camp by building three separate escape tunnels. Richard Attenborough is the British soldier who masterminds the whole plan, and who commands his motley squad-featuring Charles Bronson as a Polish trench-digging expert, James Garner as an American with a talent for theft, Donald Pleasence as a masterful forger, and Steve McQueen as an American rebel-through the construction of the tunnels and, eventually, their escape.

"THE TOWERING INFERNO" Duncan Enterprises, an architectural and construction empire, is readying the dedication of The Glass Tower, the world's tallest skyscrapper, located in San Francisco. Amid the activities of James Duncan and his chief architect Douglas Roberts, a circuit breaker blows in the building's main utility room - and unknown to all the surge blows another breaker that lights materials in a storage closet on fire. The electrical snafu forces Roberts to cut short a planned vacation with his fiance Susan Franklin and to confront Roger Simmons, the firm's chief electrical specialist who oversaw installation of the wiring. As the dedication party proceeds on schedule, Roberts finds the building's wiring is in worse shape than he could have expected, and it all blows up when the burning storage closet suddenly erupts into the corridors. The fire spreads with such speed that the entire San Francisco fire department must be called in, lead by Batallion Chief Michael O'Halloran, who expresses his distaste for skyscrappers to Roberts because the department can't easily combat a fire above the seventh floor. The two men still must work together, as 300 guests are trapped in the spacious Promenade room at the building's summit - and the fire continues to spread and set off gas explosions, to the point that the only chance to extinguish the fire may well kill the trapped partiers atop the Tower.

"THE TIME MACHINE" In 1899 London, George (Rod Taylor), an idealistic scientist, arrives disheveled, surprising dinner friends with his story of time travel. Told in flash back, he presents a time machine model to his group a week prior. Afterward, his friend Filby (Allan Young) expresses concern, but George leaves 1899 & travels briefly to 1940 & 1966, seeing world war. In 802,701 AD, he realizes humanity has split into the very simple Eloi, above ground dwellers, & the cannibalistic, underground Morlocks. He rescues an Eloi named Weena (Yvette Mimieux), & teaches the pacifist Eloi to fight for themselves. George returns to 1899 with his story, but his friends don't believe him. He leaves again, but with 'three books '. Filby, not knowing when George will return, realizes his friend has "all the time in the world".

"THE CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND" Cableman Roy Neary (Richard Dreyfuss) is one of several people who experience a close encounter of the first kind, witnessing UFOs flying through the night sky. He is subsequently haunted by a mountainlike image in his head and becomes obsessed with discovering what it represents, putting severe strain on his marriage. Meanwhile, government agents around the world have a close encounter of the second kind, discovering physical evidence of otherworldly visitors in the form of military vehicles that went missing decades ago suddenly appearing in the middle of nowhere. Roy and the agents both follow the clues they have been given to reach a site where they will have a close encounter of the third kind: contact.

"THE SCARLET AND THE BLACK" In 1943, German-occupied Rome witnessed many atrocities of the Gestapo under the command of Colonel Herbert Kappler. Monsignor Hugh O'Flaherty, an Irish priest, was assigned to the Vatican under the pontificate of Pope Pius XII, and he organizes an enormous network of civilians to save Jewish refugees and Allied POWs from the Nazis. When Colonel Kappler, the Gestapo Chief, learns of this, he is determined to capture the Monsignor. However, the Monsignor has diplomatic immunity with his Vatican position, and although he is safe there, he needs to use disguises to get out of the walls and help the refugees. The Colonel's keen pursuit on capturing the priest red handed soon becomes an obsession. Later as the Allies are about to enter Rome, the tables are turned. Now the ruthless Nazi commander wants to save his wife and children and the only hope he can think of is none other than Monsignor Hugh O'Flaherty. "The Scarlet and The Black" is an inspirational tale of moral courage, human spirit, sacrifice, compassion, forgiveness and altruism. Although the movie is a made-for-TV movie, it is often considered to be a great film none the less, due in large part to the overall ability of legendary actor Gregory Peck.

"THE POSEIDON ADVENTURE" At midnight on New Years Eve the S.S. Poseidon is struck by a 90' tidal wave and is capsized. The Reverend Frank Scott leads nine Survivors; an elderly couple, Manny and Belle Rosen headed to Israel to see their grandson; A New York detective and his ex-prostitute wife, Mike and Linda Rogo on their second honeymoon to Italy; A young brother and sister, Robin and Susan Shelby going to meet their parents in Greece; A haberdasher James Martin; a pop singer Nonnie Parry, and a waiter from the ship Acres. They travel from the grand ballroom struggling through, steam, fire and rising water in the up-side-down ship to reach the bottom (the propeller shaft), now the top.

"BEYOND THE POSEIDON ADVENTURE" Irwin Allen's second water-logged disaster film picks up where The Poseidon Adventure left off; Salvagers Michael Caine, Karl Malden and Sally Field enter the Poseidon to take what they can, unaware that evil salvager Telly Savalas and his henchmen lie in wait. When an explosion rocks the ship, the enemies find themselves trapped inside in a battle for survival both against nature and themselves. The good guys pick up some survivors along the way, including Peter Boyle as a stereotypically hot-headed Italian, Mark Harmon as the All-American boy next door, and Slim Pickens as the ship's wine steward in what may be one of the most poorly-written parts of all time. Field looks good in the water, and Caine is charming despite a lack of material, but the merits end there.

"S.O.S. TITANIC" On April 14, 1912 the R.M.S. Titanic struck an iceberg on her maiden voyage. Over 1500 people were lost.
