The 1970 film Kelly’s Heroes, with a cast list of Clint Eastwood, Donald Sutherland, Don Rickles, and Telly Savalas, tells the story of World War II soldiers who go AWOL to pull a heist. Perhaps, a film based on the true events of one of the world’s greatest robberies can only play out in complete absurdity. Even the idea of stealing Nazi gold worth $2.5 billion would be turned down on the basis of implausibility. However, that theft was actually recorded as the “biggest” robbery in the Guinness Book of Records in the ‘60s.
