Movie Info

With American Army troops only a day away from the Germans, a Nazi general orders a bridge over the Rhine River be destroyed. Major Kreuger (Robert Vaughn) is the Nazi officer who realizes that if the Americans arrive on time, 50,000 German soldiers will have no escape route. The Allied commander orders Lieutenant Hartman (George Segal) to secure the bridge. With the help of Sergeant Angelo (Ben Gazzara), the Americans go deep into enemy territory to secure the strategically located crossing. Kreuger does his best to delay the destruction ordered by General Shinner (E.G. Marshall). As the American Army troop approaches, Kreuger is torn between following orders and saving the only means of escape from being dynamited in this action-packed war drama. Filming in Czechoslovakia was halted by the 1968 Russian invasion of the country. The production was finished in Italy.

    I have loved warfilms since I was a kid and this doesnt dissapoint...

    The political and social climate of the late 60's and early 70's made it popular and acceptable to depict soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines as individuals of thin moral fiber and questionable character. The screenplay of The Bridge at Remagen is ripe with such characters. Taken at face value, one would be lead to believe that the American Army rode to victory on the backs of reluctant draftees who were, at best, insubordinate & lazy and, at worst, thieves and rapists. It's shameful that the heroic men of this military campaign are remembered according to this pitiful, inaccurate portrayal.
