In Zona, Geoff Dyer--'one of our most original writers' (New York)--devoted a whole book to Andrei Tarkovsky's cult masterpiece, Stalker. Now, in this warm and funny tribute to one of his favorite movies, he revisits the action classic Where Eagles Dare. A thrilling Alpine adventure headlined by a magnificent, bleary-eyed Richard Burton and a dynamically lethargic Clint Eastwood, Where Eagles Dare is the apex of 1960s war movies, by turns enjoyable and preposterous. 'Broadsword Calling Danny Boy' is Dyer's hilarious tribute to a film he has loved since childhood: it's a scene-by-scene analysis--or should that be send-up?--taking us from the movie's snowy, Teutonic opening credits to its vertigo-inducing climax.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Geoff DyerPublisher: VintagePublished: 05/19/2020ISBN: 9780525563082Pages: 128Weight: 0.25lbsSize: 7.90h x 5.20w x 0.60d
