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.
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.

The "Guns of Navarone" is another awesome flick. Based loosely around a true story.</div></div>
Both books by the same author, Alistair MacLean
but sorry don't want to hi-jack, just mention in case you didn't know.
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.
