Kelly's Heroes is an offbeat 1970 war film about a group of enterprising World War II soldiers from the U.S. 35th Infantry Division.

During World War II (specifically, late summer or autumn of 1944 in France), Kelly (Clint Eastwood), a former lieutenant demoted to private as a scapegoat, captures a German colonel in Intelligence and gets him drunk to try to get information. Before he is killed by an assaulting German tank unit, the drunken prisoner of war blurts out an interesting tidbit: there is a cache of 14,000 gold bars (at a value of $16 million) stored in a bank vault 30 miles behind enemy lines in the town of Clairemont.

Kelly recruits a group of soldiers on R&R to sneak off and steal it. They include a skeptical master sergeant, "Big Joe" (Telly Savalas); a greedy and opportunistic supply sergeant, "Crapgame" (Don Rickles); a proto-hippie Sherman tank commander, "Oddball" (Donald Sutherland); and a number of stereotypical G.I.s. The men are presented as competent, but war-weary veterans; their motivations are more cynical and self-serving than patriotic.
