Atten-hut! Clint Eastwood and Lee Marvin lead these tales of combat that mix firepower with tongue-in-cheek attitude.

Donald Sutherland, Telly Savalas and Don Rickles are among the larcenous heroes in Kelly's Heroes [Side A]. The Dirty Dozen [Side B] is the influential granddaddy of hard-hitting ensemble action flicks, a tale of jailed losers volunteered in the army way for a suicide mission. Marvin plays the tough-as-nails major who bullies his squad (Charles Bronson, Jim Brown, Sutherland, Savalas and more) into a fighting unit that can win this war any of a dozen ways.

I have this exact UPC, but it is on one double sided DVD and not two DVDs as listed.

"I already own both films but purchased this as the case described "Dirty Dozen" as being a 16x9 transfer. It is not. Further, special features are listed for this film that are not actually on the disc. I knew I was in trouble when the film began with the Turner logo. Old transfer. "Kelly's Heroes" IS 16x9 as it was on the single feature release.
In addition, it appears the newly repackaged "How the West Was Won" suffers from the same deceptive packaging by being labeled "enhanced for widescreen TVs" when it is not and is also an old Turner master.
People are bound to complain so it's hard to believe Warner Home Video, previously very reliable, would do this intentionally. Something is defintely wrong in their QC department these days."
BEWARE OF FALSE ADVERTISING ON PACKAGE

"These are both EXCELLENT movies. However, for some reason (mere incompetence, I'd bet) the dvd's packaging states that The Dirty Dozen is presented in 16x9 (anamorphic) format and also includes audio commentary by cast and crew. This is NOT TRUE--neither of these features exist on the disc. If you're thinking of buying this as an upgrade from your standard single-disc version of Dirty Dozen, don't bother. The DD side of this flipper disc is the same as the budget single-disc, non-anamorphic version that's been available for years. Warner's should either fix the packaging, or upgrade the content of the disc. SO ANNOYING!"
A Great Value for Those Who Just Want to Watch the Movies!

"I think pretty much all the previous reviewers, as well as myself, agree that both these movies are great war flicks. I saw them both when they were originally released in the theatre and thoroughly enjoyed them. For whatever reason I had never gotten around to buying the movies when they were released on DVD. So when my daughter gave this "Double-Feature" set to me for Christmas I was thrilled.
These are basic DVDs of the films. There are very little "special features" included. Both films have the trailers and the Dirty Dozen has a short featurette on the film. That's pretty much it. But since I'm not a big fan of film commentaries that is fine with me. Most of the time I find the commentaries to be the ramblings of people too darn old to quite remember what they were thinking while they were filming anyway. Just check out the commentaries for The Magnificent Seven (Special Edition). Eli Wallach, James Colburn, and two production managers talking over the top of each other. Drove me nuts!
The big advantage here is that you get both movies, on opposite sides of the same disk, for a great price. Both are uncut so you don't get the "Edited for television and formatted to fit your screen" versions. If you are like me and buy DVDs mostly to watch the movies, and the special features aren't that important to you, then don't hesitate. It will cost you more when purchased separately. "

"I like the movies, but the DVD skip on both movies, the soundtrack was on and off at times. I hope the rest is ok. Tom Thomas"
