    Kelly's Heroes (1970)
    RTE1
    Sun 31 May 13:10 145 min
    Filmed in Yugoslavia as was. So lots of extras and most of the vehicles are real apart from the Tigers which were smaller T-34's made to like them.

    A film that makes a lot more sense when you realise it's about the Vietnam war. Just like Mash and to a lesser extent Catch-22 or the Dirty Dozen.

    Dirty Dozen. (1967)
    ITV4

    Film4
    23:15-02:15 Sat 30th May 2020 90m

    Indonesian martial arts film.

    That's a cracking film - manages to be very different from the original while maintaining the feel and spirit of it

    A Night to Remember 1958 B&W
    Compare this to the 1997 Titanic blockbuster. This is way more historically accurate and the characters don't have contemporary values.
