When Kelly is exiting his jeep to go visit Mulligan he brings along a bottle of whiskey. Later when he goes to visit Crapgame he is given a bottle of whiskey and is seen taking it with him after he leaves. This indicates the Mulligan scene was originally supposed to be placed after the Crapgame scene but was switched for some reason. See more »

There will never be a cast of characters brought together for one movie which could compare to this one. Clint Eastwood shows that he can be good at being quite serious, humorous, and even let other people steal scenes without losing presence. The real difference though lies in the rest of the cast which is a group of All-Stars who excel at certain type characters the likes of which you can not find today. Examples: Telly Savalas showing why he would become a MAJOR TV star later, Don Rickles being Don Rickles but keeping his movie character true to the film, Carroll O'Connor showing that greatness was just around the corner for him, and Donald Sutherland is just too good for words. What really makes this movie though is unlike other movies which bring together a lot of big names and top character actors, Kelly's Heroes did not lose focus on the importance of the plot. THe story never gets lost to the characters. Absolutely great job!
