Harry H. Corbett,
Due to the political sensitivity of filming a movie about the rescue of a war criminal some scenes were filmed at similar looking locations, inter-cut with a brief tracking shot of the real location. For obvious reasons, they couldn't film inside Spandau Prison, so the similar looking Tegel Correctional Institution was used, scenes featuring Smuts Barracks and the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church were also filmed at similar looking locations.

As a fan of the original "Wild Geese," I couldn't help but be crushingly disappointed by this disjointed, boring "sequel." Scott Glen goes through the film as if on Prozac and Barbara Carrera is strictly no-talent eye-candy. Edward Fox looks bored in yet another of his Jackal-ripoff roles. As for Laurence Olivier as Hess, well, it looks like he thought he would reprise his embarrassing performance as Neil Diamond's father in the 1980 "Jazz Singer." This was just one more of the many child-support-and-alimony-payments-are-due roles that crowded the end of his otherwise distinguished career.
