"Killin' generals could get to be a habit with me" Joseph T. Wladislaw: charles bronsans role

Major John Reisman: Which one of you guys wants to be a general?
Major John Reisman: Pinkley?
Pinkley: What kind of general, sir?
Major John Reisman: Just a plain, ordinary, every day, home-lovin' American general.
Pinkley: I'd rather be a civilian, sir.

Major John Reisman: What do you think, Sergeant?
Sergeant Clyde Bowren: I think you'll do just fine, sir.
Major John Reisman: [emphatically] I said what do you think?
Sergeant Clyde Bowren: I think the first chance one of those lovers gets, he's going to shoot the Major right in the head... sir.

A great classic movie!

Thanks.

I've had a lot to do lately, so I haven't had the time to make a War movies section yet, but I hope to get it done in a week or two..

That is like one of my all time favorite classic war movies. It doesn't get better than Lee Marvin (Maj. John Reisman) in the dirty dozen. He was a hardcore, hard chargin s.o.b. in that movie.

I also loved Telly Savalas' character (Archer J. Maggot), he played a pretty good crazy guy.

But it doesn't get anybetter that the scene where they are getting Donald Sutherland (Vernon L. Pinkley) to be a general. That was great!

yeah, It took me a time or two watching it before I liked the over all story, but I always liked the Maj. He was just too cool.

Maj: The southern gentleman had a problem with the dining arragements. He and the other fellas are dicussing the placement of the placard.
Sgt: So Corpal how about the dodegers? I always thought they had good hitters.

Maj: You can either march or I'll kick your brains in.
Fargo: ........???.....
Maj: What'd you see Sgt.?
Sgt: I saw the prisioner attack the Maj and the Maj was forced to defened himself. Very good Sgt.

:At the beginning after the MPs are calling out the numbers of the men:

Major Reisman: What's your name, soldier?
Soldier: Eleven

Now, I can't remember the soldier's name, even though I own the film, but I haven't watched it in a while, but it was the insubordinate one.

Struck me funny.

Remember when they sneaked the girls in?
Reisman to the Guard tower:
"Keep your eyes open and youyr mouth shut, Maggot! You're on guard duty!"

Pinkley: Very pretty, General. Very pretty. But, can they fight?

Pinkley: Where are you from, son?
Soldier: Madison City, Missouri, sir!
Pinkley: Never heard of it.
