Edgar Wallace is the British crime story writer. His stories were made into films by German film  Studios.

Winnetou was a fictional Apache Indian character. They made movies about him. I doubt its that person. Must just be the name he used.

IB sounds like QT is mixing his realer than real world universe and his movie movie universe together. I love how he's having all these historical film figures guest star in the movie!  8)

I would love to see a Das Boot reference. Das Boot actually expands to a year, so you see the cast grow beards through time. I would love to see QT do something similar.

It sounds like QT added a boatload of references and characters in there. Like his own mini WW2 era film universe.

Juergen Prochnow would play a good nazi, but he's too old now, and he's done it way to much I guess

Winnetou and Drummond are merely mentioned and/or discussed in the script. They don't actually make an entrance, although I agree it would be nice if they did. But there's an English spy in there, whose physical appearance and demeanor seem to hint at George Sanders's portrayal of The Saint.
PS: Seba, if you're interested in Bulldog Drummond, check out for an interesting incarnation of his character in Moore's "The Black Dossier": http://www.amazon.com/League-Extraordin ... 140120306X

OK, I think I've been pointed towards one of the biggest apparent influences on the IB script. I haven't seen this film, but I've just been reading up a little bit on it, and there are huge similarities with one of IB's main plot points: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0389557/ (Black Book it's called)

I also think we can scratch all the other classic War movies...as IB will look nothing like any of them, except of course for using them as a starting point (The Ingolrious Bastards, Dirty Dozen etc.) before evolving into something completely different and unique for good or for worse, time will tell!

Edit: WOW! I've just watched the trailer for this movie; I'll be damned if this didn't have an impact on QT, haha. Check it out: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0389557/tra ... 2595881241

This is one I havent seen yet, but Ive wanted to. Im a big fan of Paul Verhoeven. I really cant say if its an influence or not because I havent read the script or seen this movie yet. It could very well be.

. . .the train is a really cool looking movie, especially that plane attack at the tunnel.  good choice.  saving private ryan had a cool soldiers-on-a-mission feel.  another favorite war picture is peckinpah's major dundee. . .

The opening scene for IB sorta reminded me of Angel Eyes'  (Lee Van Cliffe) intro.

I think its reasonable to expect a lot of Godardian influence in the Black and White section.

Dantes Inferno wrote: There's gonna be a lot of Spaghetti Western-influence too. Didn't QT say the film was going to be like a SW set in WWII? He did at least say that Inglorious Bastards will be to WWII what The Good, The Bad and The Ugly was to the Civil War.
I'm having a hard time visualizing this movie.  QT said that it was going to be a modern WWII movie.  He doesn't want it to feel like a period piece, but like a modern everyday movie.

someone help me please.

guys, if u are looking for a movie the might have influenced tarantino's Inglorious Bastards...i REALLY sugest u to watch The Eagle Has Landed with Robert Duvall and Michael Caine...that movie is very cool and is about a fictitios plot by the nazies to assassinate Winston Churchil...it made me think about Bastards all the way through it (and i have already readed quentin's screenplay)

realy good movie

Yeah, he said in an interview for...new york times? Anyway, he said he was gonna include a scene with a dog or a horse getting friendly with one of the basterds. But, he also mentioned that it might actually not end up in the movie since the script is, you know, as long as the novel The Young Lions (by the way, it was made into a great war flick).

is Hicox a refrence to Doug Hicox the director who Did Brannagan and Zulu Dawn. Both were shown at a QT fest in Austin? Also Wicki could be Barnard Wicki the director of the german section of Longest Day as well as the star of Pabst's (name checked in IB) Jackboot mutiny, the first kill hitler film.

Wicki, yes. made one of the quintessential anti war films ("The Bridge"), which was just remade for television here (again). The Bridge had a minuscule budget and paper (!) tanks...

What are Tarantino's Favorite War Movies?

Post by ingloriousbastard » Wed Sep 24, 2008 4:53 pm

What are Tarantino's Favorite War Films? Movies that have probably inspired his Spaghetti Western/Exploitation/'Guys-on-a-Mission homage/remake Inglorious Bastards.

Here's some people can add to;

Inglorious Bastards (Dir. Enzo G. Castellari - 1977)
Casualties of War (Dir. Brian De Palma - 1989)
Battle of the Bulge (Dir. Ken Annakin - 1965)
Where Eagles Dare (Dir. Brian G. Hutton - 1968)
The Guns of Navarone (Dir. J. lee Thompson - 1961)

anymore?

IMDb says that it was referenced in an interview Tarantino had with Charlie Rose 2003.  Don't know what was said and I don't have time to watch it.

Also: Eastern Condors, Dark of The Sun. Those are two of the main films that inspired him to start writing Basterds. He showed both at one of his QT Film Fests.

Im pretty sure Lenzi's From Hell To Victory was another big inspirational film for Basterds.

oh yeah. just watched five for hell. Garko's character might be one model for Aldo Raine, although five for hell wasn't really a good movie.
