One of the strongest obscure Hollywood classics out there. Unique in the fact the storyline is told from the point of view of the Germans during WWI. Interesting in that George Peppard plays his lead role brilliantly. Almost too good a movie for it's time, worth a viewing if you're a history buff or just like old-school filmmaking.

SUMMARY: this is about a german solider that stops at literally nothing to recieve a Bllue Max, a high honored metal recieved after u kill 20 people. This is his story through all the circumstances he goes through gettin the Blue Max. POSITIVES: this has one of the best plots ive seen in a while. Its a really really good storyline and the acting was absolutely great. IMPROVEMENTS: super fake for a movie from the '60s. OVERALL: this is a really good movie, but its super fake.

Truly fantastic film, and such an unusual one: a Hollywood produced drama entirely about German pilots during WWI. It's essentially a story about ambition, jealousy, rivalry and arrogance, set in the skies of Europe in the golden age of dogfighting and aerial adventure, and with a love triangle featuring a sultry Ursula Andress thrown in for good measure! Do not pass up the opportunity to see this film. One important point: must-see in widescreen DVD due to its magnificent photography.
