Nun Sara is on the run in Mexico and is saved from cowboys by Hogan, who is preparing for a future mission to capture a French fort. The pair become good friends, but Sara never does tell him the true reason behind her being outlawed.
Operation Market Garden, September 1944: The Allies attempt to capture several strategically important bridges in the Netherlands in the hope of breaking the German lines. However, mismanagement and poor planning result in its failure.
During World War II a German Colonel is captured by the Americans but before he can be interrogated an artillery barrage hits the camp. However, Ex-Lieutenant Kelly manages to reach the Colonel, get him drunk and learn that he is on a secret mission to ship $16,000,000 of gold to a base in France. Kelly is determined to get the gold and plans for himself and a few of his fellow soldiers to slip into enemy territory and steal the bullion.Written by

Many of the girls in the celebration crowds are wearing short skirts and leather boots, a fashion combination that wasn't in vogue until 1970. See more »
What are you doing?
I'm drinking wine and eating cheese, and catching some rays, you know.
Well, the tank's broke and they're trying to fix it.
Well, then, why the hell aren't you up there helping them?
I only ride 'em, I don't know what makes 'em work.
Definitely an antisocial type. Woof, woof, woof! That's my other dog imitation.

An older video release has a very quick scene involving Germans trying to jump over a truck (after the group crosses the minefield). This scene isn't in the 1999 video; however, a scene with one of the American machine gun crews right after the deleted scene is inserted. See more »
Kelly's Heros brilliantly mixes your average war movie with a bank robbery movie to come up with a plot that's entirely unique.
Equipped with an all-star cast, Clint Eastwood and Telly Savalas play the straight guys to the comic antics of Donald Sutherland and Don Rickles. The movie makes no moral judgements about bad guys and good guys and simply shows the characters of both sides a path to redemption in the midst of war. In addition, the theme song, "Burning Bridges" is rendered with a youthful tone by the Mike Curb Congregation, which reminds us that in reality, people not much removed from childhood are the ones sent into battle.
We cheer when they get their just rewards.
