The Guns of Navarone


Watch for a brief cameo early in the film by Richard Harris as a pilot sent to try to blow the guns up; after an unsuccessful mission where some pilots and crews were lost - he gives the commander a straight answer to whether the guns can be destroyed from the air

"...we haven't got a bomb big enough to blow up those bloody guns, and thatís the bloody truth sir!"
