The Dirty Dozen

Jim Brown Tribute Film!

As D-Day approaches, Colonel Breed hands the roguish Major Reisman (Lee Marvin) an important assignment: He must train a team of soldiers to parachute across enemy lines and assassinate German personnel at a French chateau. The soldiers, recruited from murderers, rapists and criminals on death row, are promised commuted sentences. In spite of their history, the 12 men prove a spirited and courageous unit. Led by Major Reisman, they will exact revenge.

1967, 149 minutes, USA, Directed by Robert Aldrich

  • "Director Aldrich manages to zero in on the griping and grime, the chaos and cohesiveness of Americans at war, and in so doing, makes The Dirty Dozen a clean hit that packs the highest-echelon example of wit and wallop."

    - Clifford Terry, CHICAGO TRIBUNE
  • "An abundance of hilarious humor, injected by Mr. Aldrich, the star, Lee Marvin and the cast, is a blessed relief from the strain of gory details and grim aspects of war, fought by a mere handful of American on foreign soil."

    - Wanda Hale, NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
  • "The Dirty Dozen is every bit that an epic war thriller with an all-star cast should be."

    - Danielle Solzman, SOLZY AT THE MOVIES
