Trivia

The character of Major John Reisman played by Lee Marvin in The Dirty Dozen (1967) and The Dirty Dozen: Next Mission (1985) does not appear in this movie nor in the next "Dirty Dozen" TV movie sequel, The Dirty Dozen: The Fatal Mission (1988). His character was replaced by the character of Major Wright for these two movies and is played by Telly Savalas. Savalas had appeared in the original The Dirty Dozen (1967) movie as Archer Maggott where his character was killed-off. See more »

The dartboard at the "girls-school" is hung incorrectly. It should have 20 straight upwards (at 12 o'clock), but instead 20 is about in the 7 o'clock position. See more »

Deadly and Fatal make a great double feature
23 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I highly recommend picking up the two Dirty Dozen double feature DVD sets. The first one includes the classic 1967 film The Dirty Dozen with it's 1985 made for television sequel Dirty Dozen: The Next Mission. There's also a documentary on the making of the original Dirty Dozen and a historical documentary on the real life Filthy Thirteen. The other double feature DVD contains the 1987 made for television sequel Dirty Dozen: The Deadly Mission and it's 1988 made for television sequel Dirty Dozen: The Fatal Mission. Fatal and Deadly make an affordable DVD package that is infinitely re-watchable and highly entertaining if you don't take 'em too seriously. There's plenty of humor and action in this double feature. It's a great way to spend a few hours kicking back with a quality beverage. Give the Deadly Mission / Fatal Mission double feature DVD a spin.
