Bill Burr presents "The Dirty Dozen"

Twelve dirty-dog convicts are chosen to go on a suicide mission against Hitler’s high command in The Dirty Dozen — what’s not to love? Robert Aldrich directed this heart-pounding, old-fashioned WWII actioner with a stellar cast, led by the quintessential man’s-man Lee Marvin, and bolstered by the likes of Telly Savalas, Charles Bronson, Jim Brown, Ernest Borgnine, George Kennedy, Donald Sutherland and even John Cassavetes! Released in ‘67 at the start of the “Summer Of Love,” with Vietnam student protests growing, and the “New Hollywood” blooming (hello, Bonnie and Clyde and The Graduate), this king of macho flicks was a huge box office smash, and garnered a Best Supporting Actor Oscar nom for future independent film pioneer Cassavetes. This is the personal selection of the hilarious comedian and actor Bill Burr (Breaking Bad). Come learn why Bill holds this film so close to his heart!Bill Burr will be here at the Cinefamily to introduce the film, and participate in a Q&A afterwards!
Dir. Robert Aldrich, 1967, 35mm, 150 min.
