MGM Original One-Sheet Poster for the John Hough directed wartime suspense film BRASS TARGET (1978). The film is a good example of the kind of World War II films that were done in the late 1960s and 1970s. Big budgets and big stars. The movie stars Sophia Loren (who doesn't want to see her in any movie?), George Kennedy (as General George S. Patton), Robert Vaughn, Patrick McGoohan, Bruce Davison, John Cassavetes and a host of other competent actors. The film was not given much attention by the public when it was released, but it has been praised for attention to detail and its accurate portrayal of the period at the near-end of World War II in Europe. It was adapted from a novel, "The Algonquin Project" by Frederick Nolan. Wikipedia makes this observation: "Brass Target, despite a lukewarm reception upon its release, is noted for its attention to historical detail in an early post-war Europe. The Cold War had not started but relations with the Russians are shown to have already become frosty. The theory that Patton was assassinated in a staged accident follows the storyline of the novel The Algonquin Project by Frederick W. Nolan, upon which the film was based. It was considered by most to be purely fictional, but a book entitled Target: Patton, The Plot to Assassinate General George S. Patton by Robert K. Wilcox published in 2008 lends credence to the idea. Although approximately $2.5 billion in German gold, most of which is still missing, was determined to have been pilfered in several separate thefts, no train robbery occurred as depicted in the film."
