The Eagle Has Landed

A young girl falls into the stream by the mill. One of the Germans jumps in to rescue him but is killed in the waterwheel. His uniform is torn apart revealing his German uniform underneath. The Germans battle from the church against American troops while Michael Caine sneaks out. He kills Churchill before being killed himself. 'Churchill' is really a stunt double. Everyone else gets killed except Donald Sutherland.

Factual error: In the aerial shot over rural Britain near the beginning of the movie, there are two modern cars visible. Too new to be early 40's models.
