Tom Cruise in Austria's Salzburg for film shoot

"Valkyrie" is the true story of a German officer in World War II who plotted to assassinate Adolf Hitler. Cruise told Barbara Walters the film was "inspiring." "It was an incredible screenplay," he said. "A story that I didn't know about, and that I had no idea that that happened? it was just very compelling." (Dan Steinberg/AP Photo)
