Digging the Dirty Dozen
19 November 2011 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

This is a short film promoting the forthcoming MGM feature film "The Dirty Dozen" (1967) and its star Lee Marvin. In London, "action guy" Marvin arrives for work on the new motion picture. The tough cast is introduced - they are so tough our narrator implies they willfully put their very lives in danger during the shoot. This is the roughest, most demanding of Marvin's approximately 100 film roles. Marvin is a pleasure to work with and makes everyone involved love the shoot...

This hyperbole is accompanied by some good behind the scenes footage of "general" Robert Aldrich shooting some key scenes. During their time off, the stars go out to mod London and swing. The guys enjoy themselves on the town and "charge their batteries." Football player Jim "Jimmy" Brown is welcomed by all as a movie star. We're led to believe the actors loved risking their lives and crunching their bones so you can thrill to "The Dirty Dozen" from your seat in the cinema.

**** Operation Dirty Dozen (1967) Ronald Saland ~ Lee Marvin, Fred Foy, Robert Aldrich, Jim Brown
