Joan Armatrading's theme song from the 1978 film 'The Wild Geese'. This is another of my favourite films, a great cast, Richard Burton, Roger Moore, Richard Harris and Hardy Kruger, plus a host of other British actors.

Contents of such films evade the reality of history. I see Hollywood was still producing anti German propaganda for many years. Hollywood was never a source of enlightenment or education but more of American "culture" or better, entertainment. Ideal for prolonging the hatred in the masses of American viewers for decades to come as well as for promoting violence and crime in their own states and cities. A country or society which glorifys violence and still maintains the death penalty and a mediaeval system of justice, has no place among civilised nations of the 21st Century.

Watched many war movies they are what they are produced for the purpose of entertainment. Many may be inaccurate in part but if it gets people interested in past events can only be a good thing. As for the death penalty in the USA it is only in certain states that it is used.

I agree Scott, the classic films of the 60's and 70's had allot to do with people getting interested in military history. Pity they just don't seem capable of making these type of films anymore, maybe we just don't have the same quality of actors these days. The Wild Geese and Cross of Iron are both British made films, with Cross of Iron being an Anglo / German co-production.
