The sequel novel is news to me. Did E.M. Nathanson also write that one? The 600-page novel, for all its depth, virtually left out the critical attack mission, saving it for the last eight pages and basically in P.S. form.....
Yes he did and the two TV movie sequels have nothing to do with it. A Dirty Distant War the survivors of the Dozen are sent to the CBI and get in a mission in Vietnam along with Ho Chi Minh

Re: The Dirty Dozen

This is a hell of a good film. It's really funny and also really gritty. The Wild bunch and Bonnie and Clyde get a lot of the credit for upping screen violence, but The Dirty Dozen features our heroes locking all the Nazis in a shelter (With their wives and numerous innocents), and pouring gasoline and grenades in the vents. It's pretty intense, and undoubtedly exciting.

Actually, IIRC, servants were the only innocents and they were told to leave.

Re: The Dirty Dozen

Like PSYCHO, THE DIRTY DOZEN's M.P.A.A. rating was fairly recently switched from ''Unrated'' to ''R.'' Most unrated 60s films are usually no stronger than PG-13 and more often less so. Since there's no actual nudity and no harsh language, I doubt PSYCHO deserves this rating. DOZEN might not either...

........although there IS that sudden head-shot in which Private Vladek gets it. That's the goriest moment.

Nobody did two-and-a-half-hour star-studded thrillers like Robert Aldrich. See THE FLIGHT OF THE PHOENIX (1965) and TWILIGHT'S LAST GLEAMING (1977) for further proof.

I saw Flight of the Phoenix once when I was a kid. It wasn't bad from what I recall of it.

Re: The Dirty Dozen

The only strange thing for that film was having Ian Bannen nominated that year for Best Supporting Actor. It wasn't a bad performance, but he was essentially one out of 12 talking heads in the film and I can't recall any standout moments or Oscar-bait acting tactics from him.....

I came across a book which had hundreds of specific cemetery locations for famous and not so famous actors, including Lee Marvin, who died in 1987. The book gave the exact letter-numeric code spot for Marvin's grave.....probably since he's in Arlington Cemetery, which is immense. He lies just a few feet away from Joe Louis, Alvin York and Audie Murphy. Most of their tombstones are a lot smaller than you might expect.

Charles Durning was a new addition to Arlington as of December....
