Larry Karaszewski on

Kelly’s Heroes

Released 1970
Distributor Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer

A kinder, gentler Dirty Dozen, the screwball nature of Brian G. Hutton’s Kelly’s Heroes is best summed up by Jack Davis’s typically Mad poster art. Clint Eastwood plays an army grunt with his eye on a cache of German gold who receives able assistance from a motley crew of misfits including Telly Savalas, Don Rickles and Donald Sutherland (living up to his character’s nickname, “Oddball”).
