The Eagle Has Landed


Time Out says

Plodding time-passer about a Nazi plot tokidnap Churchill from his Norfolk retreat in 1943. Tom Mankiewicz, adapting Jack Higgins' bet-hedging bestseller ('at least half documented historical fact'), goes for an examination of good/bad German motivations that cuts across the sub-Jackal suspense; Sturges turns in a tired study of Cherman and Oirish accents, and little else. There's not one iota of the two-way menace of a partly similar Germans-in-Britain picture like Went the Day Well?
