Director Roger Corman once said of this film: "The odd thing about this movie is that it had a very similar plot to an old western of mine, Five Guns West (1955). It also came out before The Dirty Dozen (1967). I've heard stories that the producers of 'The Dirty Dozen' actually postponed production of their film an entire year because they realized that our story-lines were so similar." See more »

A shorter, cheaper, better version of THE DIRTY DOZEN
An army major leads a rag-tag band of convicts on a daring mission behind enemy lines. THE DIRTY DOZEN, you ask? No, THE SECRET INVASION, a solid Roger Corman programmer released two years earlier, with a talented cast led by Stewart Granger, Mickey Rooney, Raf Vallone, Ed Byrnes, William Campbell and Henry Silva. Far less predictable than DOZEN, this film has some dynamite performances (Byrnes, Rooney and Silva are especially good), great action, and some surprising plot twists. See it!
