The Wild Geese is a British adventure film directed by Andrew V. McLaglen about a group of mercenaries in Africa. It stars Richard Burton, Roger Moore, Richard Harris and Hardy Krüger. The film was the result of a long-held ambition of its producer Euan Lloyd to make an all-star adventure film similar to The Guns of Navarone or Where Eagles Dare. The same producer and director were later responsible for The Sea Wolves, a more sophisticated film (Roger Moore appeared in that, too and Roy Budd, again, wrote the music).

  • The Wild Geese is a British adventure film directed by Andrew V. McLaglen about a group of mercenaries in Africa. It stars Richard Burton, Roger Moore, Richard Harris and Hardy Krüger. The film was the result of a long-held ambition of its producer Euan Lloyd to make an all-star adventure film similar to The Guns of Navarone or Where Eagles Dare. The same producer and director were later responsible for The Sea Wolves, a more sophisticated film (Roger Moore appeared in that, too and Roy Budd, again, wrote the music). The screenplay by Reginald Rose was based on an unpublished novel titled The Thin White Line by Daniel Carney. The film was named The Wild Geese after a 17th-century Irish mercenary army (see Flight of the Wild Geese). Carney's novel was subsequently published by Corgi Books under the same title as the film. The novel was based upon rumours and speculation following the 1968 landing of a mysterious aeroplane in Rhodesia, which was said to have been loaded with mercenaries and "an African President" believed to have been a dying Moise Tshombe. It has been suggested that Sir Edward Matheson was based on the very real international businessman, Tiny Rowland. (en)

  • The Wild Geese (Selvagens Cães de Guerra (título no Brasil) ou Os Gansos Selvagens ou Os Selvagens Cães de Guerra (título em Portugal)) é um filme britânico de 1978 dirigido por Andrew V. McLaglen. Foi um sucesso do gênero ação dos anos 70. O filme é uma clara crítica aos resquícios do sistema colonial da África e também à presença de tropas cubanas. O filme demistifica a imagem do mercenário que luta somente pelo dinheiro e mostra que são apenas soldados onde seus perfis são traçados pela amizade, respeito mútuo, medos e sonhos. O filme teve a assessoria do famoso mercenário Coronel Mike Hoare, também conhecido como Mad Myke, que ficou mundialmente conhecido pelas suas ações na África nos anos 60. Em 1984 foi feita uma sequência, The Wild Geese II. (pt)
