Ed Neumeier on

The Dirty Dozen

Released 1967
Distributor MGM

The biggest boxoffice hit of 1967 led to scores of imitations, remakes and sequels. Robert Aldrich’s brutal action film was highly criticized at the time for its excessive violence and general air of nihilism, but has remained an audience favorite through the decades. Yet Roger Corman got there first with a more modest version of the same story, The Secret Invasion (1964).
