who is inside?

zeph’s pop culture quiz #61

A warplane in camouflage flies over snowy mountains. But who is inside? What I am asking for are the names of the two leading actors … identifying from which movie the screencap stems helps, naturally ;)

UPDATE and solution (17 March 2019): I do apologize for the substantial delay! Already on 11 January 2019 kyperpunk solved the riddle: Inside the plane are Richard Burton and Clint Eastwood.

The screencaps stem from the opening scenes of Where Eagles Dare (Hutton 1968). Fun fact: The castle in the movie is Festung Hohenwerfen in Austria—the very same castle which served as the first inspiration for the ‘fictional castle atop Reichenbach Falls in A Game of Shadows (Ritchie 2011).

HUTTON, BRIAN Geoffrey. 1968. Where Eagles Dare [motion picture]. Beverly Hills: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer.
RITCHIE, GUY STEWART. 2011. Sherlock Holmes: A game of shadows [motion picture]. Burbank: Warner Bros.
