What a website! I could have dropped these lines anywhere but I've chosen here for a very specific reason: In the moments preceeding the scene where Lt.Schaeffer enters the radio room where sits Richard Beale, there is (as all you WED fans will remember) the most wonderful, if somewhat distorted, strains of mass strings playing a teutonic tune I have yet to name - the gentle melody in perfect juxtaposition with the tension of our allies trying to sneak undetected through the corridors of the Schloss Adler. The music in this movie and the skill in where and when it is used is a major contributor as to why Where Eagle's Dare is among my three favourite movies of all time (The Guns of Navarone & Das Boot being the others). Whether it is Ron Goodwin, or Dimitri Tiomkin, or Klaus Doldinger, music in so many ways makes the movies. However, I think it is the overall carefully woven artistry of WED that makes it so great. If anyone would like to e-mail me to discuss WED, please feel free. I would welcome the conversation.

I agree with you about the music. My - very slight - connection with WED is that Richard Beale lives near me in Somerset: I used to be a delivery boy to his house many years ago.
