    Originally a character actor in television during the 1950s and early 1960s Telly Savalas made a number of memorable films including The Dirty Dozen and Kelly's Heroes before becoming a major international star thanks to television once again this time in the lead role of Kojak. Whilst for many Telly Savalas was Kojak his acting roles showed him to be at home in almost any role from the comical side in Captircorn One to the villain in On Her Majesty's Secret Service. The two films in this collection also show those skills off to perfection. Border Cop: Frank Cooper is a policeman who patrols the Mexian border trying to deal with a never ending influx of smuggled Mexicans destined for low paid jobs in the US. His real hatred however is reserved for the the high powered locals who get rich from human trafficking. Pancho Villa: Mexican general Pancho Villa needs guns to maintain his revolution but without money and a constant stream of double-crossing dealers means he must resort to other tactics. He will eventually invade the United States and take the border town of Columbus but Colonel Wilcox is hot on his trail...

  • The Dirty Dozen [1967]The Dirty Dozen | DVD | (31/05/2004) from £N/A   |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)   |  RRP £49.99

    A model for dozens of action films to follow, this box-office hit from 1967 refined a die-hard formula that has become overly familiar, but it's rarely been handled better than it was in this action-packed World War II thriller. Lee Marvin is perfectly cast as a down-but-not-out army major who is offered a shot at personal and professional redemption. If he can successfully train and discipline a squad of army rejects, misfits, killers, prisoners, and psychopaths into a first-rate unit of specialised soldiers, they'll earn a second chance to make up for their woeful misdeeds. Of course, there's a catch: to obtain their pardons, Marvin's band of badmen must agree to a suicide mission that will parachute them into the danger zone of Nazi-occupied France. It's a hazardous path to glory, but the men have no other choice than to accept and regain their lost honor. What makes The Dirty Dozen special is its phenomenal cast including Charles Bronson, Donald Sutherland, Telly Savalas, George Kennedy, Ernest Borgnine, John Cassavetes, Richard Jaeckel, Jim Brown, Clint Walker, Trini Lopez, Robert Ryan, and others. Cassavetes is the Oscar-nominated standout as one of Marvin's most rebellious yet heroic men, but it's the whole ensemble--combined with the hard-as-nails direction of Robert Aldrich--that makes this such a high-velocity crowd pleaser. The script by Nunnally Johnson and Lukas Heller (from the novel by E.M. Nathanson) is strong enough to support the all-star lineup with ample humour and military grit, so if you're in need of a mainline jolt of testosterone, The Dirty Dozen is the movie for you. --Jeff Shannon
