Just watched THE DIRTY DOZEN on TCM. 

Made in 1967 this is one of my all time favourite movies. The Dirty Dozen is one of those evergreen classics, so entertaining, that you can see it again and again and enjoy it even more. 

I remember that this movie was one of those notable English movies that completed a silver jubilee run of 25 weeks. 

Yes, those days a film had to run for at least 25 weeks to be declared a hit, not like the forgettable multiplex movies of today which are made with the sole aim of making money and declared successful on the collections of just one weekend. 

That’s why the durable golden oldies like THE DIRTY DOZEN (and many old Hindi Films too) have repeat value and you enjoy watching them again and again. 

“The Dirty Dozen” is first class entertainment so don’t forget to watch it whenever you get a chance.
