    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.

    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....
