Some good news from our friends over at Cinema Retro Magazine. Cinema Retro's "Where Eagles Dare" movie classics special issue is now shipping worldwide!

The Eagles has landed!

That isn't poor grammar...the Eagles has indeed landed- the Cinema Retro special edition of our sold-out 2009 tribute issue to
"Where Eagles Dare". That original edition now sells for over $200 on the collector's circuit. By popular demand, this newly revised and updated edition contains all of the text from the original issue plus 36 pages of brand new material including rare archival photos and documents from the estate of producer Elliott Kastner - plus a new, exclusive interview with director Brian G. Hutton. The most comprehensive look ever at the making of the Richard Burton/Clint Eastwood 1969 WWII classic! This new issue also features dozens and dozens of rare production photos and behind-the-scenes stills, many of them never before published. 116 pages- a full 36 pages more than the original issue! 52 pages more than the standard Cinema Retro issue! This is a limited edition collector's item in perfect bound format with flat-edged spine deluxe format.

Praise from the film's director!

"Kudos on this fantastic issue! You guys have really outdone and exceeded all our expectations! Thank you so much!"-

Brian G. Hutton

When we first interviewed producer Elliott Kastner back in 2004, he told us, "You don't remake "Sabrina". You don't remake "The Blue Angel". You don't remake "Casablanca" and I won't remake "Where Eagles Dare"."

This is a stance that Cinema Retro has taken in regard to reprinting sold-out issues of our magazine. However, the response to our Movie Classics Special Issue #1 dedicated to this great WWII adventure was beyond our expectations and it sold out almost immediately when published in 2009. Since then, we have had many requests to republish and also saw the value of this issue exceed $200 per copy on eBay. Thus, we've bowed to the wishes of our readers and created an updated and expanded version of that classic issue. By doing so, we're not devaluing the original, which will remain a highly prized collector's item. Inside these pages, you will find the original issue (slightly changed with the addition of many new, rare photographs) plus new features that were not available to us at the time of the original printing. Topping it all off is an exclusive new interview with the film's director, Brian G. Hutton, plus an abundance of rarities we've just unearthed including another deleted sequence and original studio memos from the Kastner family files that shed light on who was supposed to star in the film (you won't believe it!).

This new edition can be viewed as our sincere tribute to two wonderful friends who are associated with the film: Elliott Kastner and actress Ingrid Pitt, both of whom we lost in 2010. We mourn their passing and hope that this issue will stand as a tribute to their talents and enduring legacy.
