The Eiger Sanction (1975)

Clint Eastwood politely turned down the role of 007 when it was offered to him after Connery's departure, which probably leaves "The Eiger Sanction" as the closest fans ever got to seeing him play the secret agent. Like Bond, Jonathan Hemlock also has henchmen, villains and a speckled past to contend with. This controversial film from 1975 is part spy thriller, part mountaineering adventure and marks the end of our "3 Non Bonds" review miniseries. Grab your pitons, crampons and pemmican and join BBN for a trip up the Eigerwand... Eastwood style!
