The Eiger Sanction

Someone in my social circles recommended The Eiger Sanction to me, which is a 1975 Clint Eastwood movie revolving around a government agency man (Johnathan Hemlock, played by Eastwood) who takes a job trying to find out who killed a colleague of his. George Kennedy plays a supporting role in the movie – another solid actor from a bygone era. I’ve never George in anything bad, I’ll put it that way.

No, I’m not going to spoil the plot of the movie for you entirely. Go get the movie if you want to see it.

One other note I have is the appearance in the movie of Brenda Venus in the role of George, Hemlock’s quiet exercise coach. Venus goes topless at a couple of points during the film, sporting what appear to be augmented mammary glands. That was a bit rare for a 1975 film, I reckoned – although augmentation goes back about a decade earlier and was made popular by a model named Carol Doda.

Anyway, if you’re into old school movies, The Eiger Sanction is worth your time.
