at Le Clair is...

Well, it's imaginative.

But I think it's more romantic

than practical.

I'm afraid, sir,

much would have to be done

to give this plan even

the smallest chance of succeeding.

For example, we've gone into great detail

about how to get into Le Clair.

Nothing has been said

about how we get out.

Major? How would you get out?

I was under the impression

that getting in was the important thing.

Mad dogs and Canadians.

From a purely military point of view,

the operation must be viewed

as unsound.

However, so was the idea

of the Trojan horse.

I think Mad Dog

is well worth the risk it involves.

Dammit, sir,

I request permission to withdraw

from any further participation in this!

Not granted.

Yes, sir.

Captain, I respect your concern

with this operation.

You may be right...

...but Number 10 Downing Street

wants something like this.

It's audacious, gentlemen.

It's mad.

It's just mad enough to work.

Go, go!

Move fast, men! Move, move!

Come on, move! Move!

Let's go! Come on!

Over to the target!

Up! Up, up and over!

Don't wait for the man

in front of you! Go! Go!

Well, he's certainly got them cracking.

Come on, come on!

Come on, move it there! Move!

I doubt if the Germans

will be impressed.

Well, we've selected

a moonless night to go in.

This blindfold lark

should really help their orientation.

Go, go, go!

Come on! Go!

Come on, come on! Move!

Pick your feet up!

Move fast, men!

Move, move!

Don, we've got to stop him.

Go around!

Move now! Move fast!

There are easier things to stop

than a dedicated man.

Dedicated? He's a fanatic!

Swing along those poles!

Keep your feet together!

- Hello, darling.

- Hello.


Hi, Timmy.

- You're so late.

- I know, I know.

- Let me fix you a drink.

- Good.
