Re: Kelly's Heros

A personal favorite of mine as well. I watched it on the big screen back in 1983 when it played at our campus theater. Good balance of action and comedy.

One of the best, its up there with my favorites like Van Ryan's Express with Frank Sanatra, The Great Escape, Battle of the Bulge, To Hell and Back, John Wayne and the Green Berrets, Flying Tigers, Sands of Iwo Jima, They were Expendable, In Harms Way........the list goes on but look into some of them if you liked Kelly's Hero's.

Re: Kelly's Heros

Great film. I also loved "Where Eagles Dare" with Clint Eastwood. He was playing back-up to Richard Burton. Even though the machine guns never ran out of ammo it was still good.

The "Guns of Navarone" is another awesome flick. Based loosely around a true story.

Re: Kelly's Heros

Kelly's Heros has been one of my personal fav's since I was 11. My sister got it on DVD for me for christmas a few years back, great present.

Charles DeGaulle, who IMHO is actually a dead ringer for Peter Sellers.

I loved the scene where Big Joe, Kelly and Oddball walk the street facing down the Tiger tank...Cowboy style.

In my to 10 war flicks, great movie. No matter what I am watching if I am channel surfing, and I see it on. Everything takes a second.

If you watch that scene carefully, listen, you can actually hear spurs jingling to their steps. It is clearly an attempt at humor.

Re: Kelly's Heros

I liked Oddball's brand of "psych" armored warefare with his Sherman - welding a big tube over his 75mm so the Germans would think they had "maybe a 90mm" main gun...playing music over a loudspeaker during his attacks (pre-Apocalypse Now) i.e. "I'll Be Working on the Railroad"...shooting psychedelic paint shells during battle - that almost backfired when they shot the Tiger tank in the ass end with a giant paintball instead of an HEAT round - Patton would be rolling over in his grave!

Good action mixed with good comedy. I watch it about once a year, usually during a holiday break.
