Synopsis

Sidney Pollack's film is based on the off-beat novel by William Eastlake. Burt Lancaster stars as the one-eyed Major Falconer who, after an exhausting campaign during the Second World War, leads his tired eight-man squadron to a medieval castle in the Ardennes Forest, Belgium, hoping for some rest. Count Maldorais (Jean-Pierre Aumont), the owner of the castle, welcomes the soldiers and even encourages Falconer to impregnate his young wife (Astrid Hereen) as Maldorais is impotent. The rest of the squadron have escapades of their own and are beginning to settle down to enjoy themselves when the Germans invade the forest and the troops have to resume fighting.
