I think it was the scene where von Stauffenberg comes sliding in wearing socks, skivvies and an eyepatch that blew it . . .

or maybe it was the scene where Cruise screams into the phone, “Show me the Reichsmarks!”

Then again, maybe it was the clip where he’s walking along with Rommel and yells, “I feel the need, the need for MACH SCHNELL, SCHNELL!”

“The fortunes of Hollywood actor Tom Cruise have suffered a blow with the news that his next big film has been postponed until 2009.

The release of Valkyrie, which tells the story of the 1944 assassination plot against Hitler, was first postponed from this summer to the autumn and is now not expected to appear until next year.”

I think what would have really helped the concept would been having Harrison Ford running from Tommy Lee Jones as a tough Reichsmarschall while tracking Cruise down . . .  ‘The Reichsfugitive’ – or at least Paul Newman beating him in a game of pool in ‘The Color of Reichsmarks’

Bet Tommy will be jumping on couches a lot more this summer.

  1. “Just take zem old Reichsmarks off the shelf . . . “
    I think that was the line he was singing.
    Or was it an old German beer drinking song?
