The Unofficial

"KELLY'S HEROES"   

Fan Page

This site is dedicated to those who believe that "KELLY'S HEROES" is one of the best movies ever made. Starring Clint Eastwood, Telly Savalas, Don Rickles, Donald Sutherland, Carroll O'Conner, Harry Dean Stanton, Gavin MacLeod, Stuart Margolin, Ross Elliott, and Jeff Morris it was directed by Brian G. Hutton and released in June 1970.

Using vintage World War II equipment, machinery, locales, and dialogue "KELLY'S HEROES" features some of the most realistic battle sequences ever filmed. Many of the scenes in "SAVING PRIVATE RYAN" are reminiscent of this masterfully crafted movie.

It's not only a war movie but also an anti-war movie with an interesting, exciting plot, and some of the best performances its stars have done in their careers.
