Editorial Reviews

TCM Greatest Classic Films: World War II-Battlefront Europe (4FE) (DVD)

KELLYS HEROES They were goldbricks until they found out about the gold bricks a fortune in Nazi-confiscated bullion! Clint Eastwood reups with the director of his Where Eagles Dare for this alternately action-filled and tongue-in-cheek tale of GIs who decide to get something extra out of the war. Telly Savalas, Donald Sutherland and Don Rickles co-star. THE DIRTY DOZEN Lee Marvin portrays a tough-as-nails major volunteered in the Army way to command a squad of misfits on a suicide mission against Nazi brass. Charles Bronson, Jim Brown, John Cassavetes, Trini Lopez, Telly Savalas, Donald Sutherland and Clint Walker are among the 12 jailbirds who will earn their freedom if they survive. WHERE EAGLES DARE The mission is clear. Get in. Get the general. Get out. Commandos charged with freeing a U.S. general from an Alpine fortress should also be told to trust nothing including the search-and-rescue orders just issued. Richard Burton and Clint Eastwood are in command in this twisty wartime thriller from a book by action master Alistair MacLean. BATTLEGROUND William A. Wellman directs a gripping tale of 101st Airborne troops resisting Hitler's fierce, final counteroffensive at Bastogne. James Whitmore as a feisty sergeant and Van Johnson as a wisecracking private star in this rugged and unsparing look at men in combat. Winner of Best Story, Best Screenplay and Best Cinemtaography Oscars (1949).

Format: DVD
As I've mentioned before this TCM greatest classic film series is all about bringing classic film to the masses at an affordable price. These four films are bare-bones releases of Warner Home Video's WWII classics. Three of them can be found in the boxed set World War II Collection, Vol. 1 - Battlefront Europe (The Big Red One Two-Disc Special Edition / The Dirty Dozen / Battle of the Bulge / Battleground / Where Eagles Dare). For some reason Kelly's Heroes has not been upgraded since 2000. It is one of the great offbeat wartime comedies, so I can't imagine why it has been ignored. Thus in this particular case you are probably getting a better deal than those of us who own the stand-alone DVD of this film. The Dirty Dozen now exists as a two disc special edition - The Dirty Dozen (Two-Disc Special Edition) for those who are interested. Although "Dirty Dozen" is indeed one of the great war films, I think my personal favorite is "Battleground". Directed by William Wellman it is about the 101st airborne while it is being besieged by the Germans during the Christmas of 1944. I highly recommend this set for its economy and quality.

Format: DVD
Warner's TCM GREATEST CLASSIC FILMS COLLECTION is a series of over two dozen twin packs. The four titles in each set are dubbed one per side on two flip discs. Except for promo trailers there's no bonus features, but what you --do-- get are quality transfers of well-preserved ever-popular films, at one low price.

My personal fave in "Battlefront Europe" is KELLY'S HEROES. Saw it twice in a row one Sunday afternoon in 1970 and the next day purchased a 45 of the title song, "Burning Bridges" by the Mike Curb Congregation (MGM).

SYNOPSES--

BATTLEGROUND
Elements of this picture are evident in the "Bastogne" episode of HBO's BAND OF BROTHERS (2001). Both that mini-series chapter and "Battleground" are about men of the 101st Airborne and their wintry ordeal during the "Bulge." Surrounded, outnumbered, with little food, warm clothes or ammo and under near-constant artillery barrage, about all that can be done is to hunker down and pray. Director William Wellman created here one of the most realistic of all war films.

THE DIRTY DOZEN
The best known in this set is also the most "Hollywood" of them all. Robert Aldrich directed an all-star cast in Nunnally Johnson's screenplay about an Army major who trains 12 hardened criminals for a suicide mission behind German lines. Their targets are enemy staff officers taking R&R at a well-guarded chateau.

KELLY'S HEROES
This grim WWII comedy was almost Donald Sutherland's undoing, for he nearly died from hepatitis during the Yugoslavian shoot. After-effects of his illness are visible in final scenes, where Sutherland looks haggard, thin and has red circles under his eyes.

At least three of these 4 films are so well known that anyone who is likely to buy this collection is likely to have already seen them, and probably to have memorized choice quotes. ("Drinking wine. Eating cheese. Catchin' some rays . . . you know!") They've been on heavy rotation as weekend TV-movie filler for decades. But seeing them unaltered and one the widescreen is worth the low price of this set.

The film transfers are uniformly good quality. The extras - mostly "making of . . ." shorts - are OK but not great. In short, this set is exactly what it claims to be, and it's fine that way. Any WWII or WWII-movie buff ought to have these films in their collection - they are, if not exactly models of historical accuracy, certainly key touchstones of the genre. You can't have any credibility on the subject without an intimate familiarity with "The Dirty Dozen", "Where Eagles Dare", and "Kelly's Heroes"; "Battleground" is not as well known, but is regarded as an excellent movie of its type, and much more realistic than the other three.

All in all, this is a good set of good movies at a good price. What more do you want?

OK - for the few who actually haven't seen the films, here's a capsule summary:

"The Dirty Dozen": a renegade Army major is tasked with a suicide mission against a Nazi officers' retreat; he recruits misfits from an Army prison, all sentenced to death or long terms, and offers them the possibility of freedom if they will serve on this mission - but first he has to whip the worst soldiers in the Army into a team of top commandos, then they have to actually execute the mission against insane odds. Naturally, the Dirty Dozen rise to the occasion, but not without paying a price.

The TCM Greatest Classic Films Collection: World War II - Battlefront Europe is a superb set of four of the best war movies of them all.

First on the list is Kelly's Heroes, an unusual comedy about GIs attempting to steal Nazi gold. Great suspense and witty humor (not to mention a hippy, played by Donald Sutherland) make this film entertaining and memorable.

Secondly, we have the Dirty Dozen, a fantastic story of twelve condemned men granted freedom if they agree to do a suicide mission. Great acting and a thrilling climax make this film great.

Thirdly, we have Where Eagles Dare, an incredible spy thriller in the tradition of the Guns of Navarone. With about a thousand plot twists and stunning action, Where Eagles Dare is near-perfect.

Lastly, we have Battleground, the oldest film in this collection. Pacing issues aside, this is one great film, and features some of Hollywood's greatest actors. Definitely recommended.
