Trivia

This is the only "Dirty Dozen" movie (i.e. of the original The Dirty Dozen (1967) and its three television tele-movie sequels_) that doesn't have its mission set in Nazi German occupied France as all the others did (See: The Dirty Dozen (1967); The Dirty Dozen: Next Mission (1985) and The Dirty Dozen: The Deadly Mission (1987)).

Goofs

A US WWII M1 steel helmet consists of two major parts, the outer steel shell which affords some ballistic and fragmentation protection together with the inner lightweight (non-steel) helmet liner. Telly Savalas wears the helmet liner without the steel shell - that would never occur in combat. It is a common Hollywood war movie cheat to reduce fatigue and strain on the actor's head and necks.

Fatal and Deadly 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.
