The Dirty Dozen-SE on DVD

Tue Mar 14, 2006 7:43 am

I don't recall if I mentioned this before or not, but Warner has announced a two-disc special edition of The Dirty Dozen starring Lee Marvin, Ernest Borgnine and Jim Brown. The new set will include a remastered anamorphic widescreen transfer, and a Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround track. The extras include commentary by Jim Brown, Trini Lopez, Stuart Cooper and Colin Maitland, producer Kenneth Hyman, original novelist E.M. Nathanson, film historian David J. Schow and the veteran military advisor to movies Capt. Dale Dye, an introduction by Ernest Borgine, a bonus movie (The Dirty Dozen: Next Mission - the 1985 sequel with Lee Marvin), an Armed and Deadly: The Making of The Dirty Dozen documentary, a Filthy Thirteen: Real Stories from Behind the Lines documentary, a Marine Corps Combat Leadership Skills vintage recruitment documentary, and a vintage 'Operation Dirty Dozen' featurette. If you're like me, you can't wait to have this great film remastered on DVD.
