This is a very sweet fantasy, a somewhat coming of age story for our heroine. Beautiful scenery and some interesting plot developments.

Kelly's Heroes

With a host of wonderful cameo appearances this is the best of the "band of outsiders" retro-world war II films made in the late 1960s and early 1970s. With non stop action, a search for gold and sarcastic wit Clint Eastwood leads this group of misfits beyond the German front lines to a bank where the gold is hidden. A lot of fun without over the top blood shed and profanity.
