The dirty dozen by Robert Aldrich( Visual )

"A few months before D-Day, Major Reisman, a U.S. Army officer stationed in England, is given the task of training 12 convicted GI's, murderers, rapists, thieves, for the suicidal mission of parachuting into Nazi-occupied France and blowing up a chateau housing top-ranking German officers. Although the 12 men agree to undertake the assignment in the hope of being granted pardons, their initial reaction to Reisman is one of indifference and contempt. But with Sergeant Bowren's aid, Reisman goads, browbeats, and drives the men until he earns a small measure of respect from each of them. And by standing up for his squad against the opposition of two superior officers, Colonel Breed and General Denton, Reisman eventually succeeds in forging his band of misfits into a fighting unit. To prove the worth of 'the Dirty Dozen, ' a nickname the men acquired when they were deprived of soap and water, Reisman gains permission from General Worden to allow the men to participate in war game maneuvers. After making a fool of the pompous Colonel Breed by capturing his entire staff, the men are given the go-ahead for the dangerous mission. Once parachuted into France, they make their way to the chateau and, by various ruses and surprise attacks, gain entry. Everything goes as planned until one of the Dozen, a Bible-spouting sex degenerate, Archer Maggott, goes berserk and betrays his colleagues. He is shot down, however, as the chateau is turned into a battleground of rapid machine-gun fire and exploding grenades. The savage in-fighting ends only when gasoline-soaked grenades are thrown down ventilator shafts, blowing the chateau to bits. Only three of the 12 men, Wladislaw, Posey, and Sawyer, are still alive when it is over. Both Reisman and Sergeant Bowren are present when General Worden reveals that the ex-criminals who gave their lives are now listed as soldiers who died honorably in the line of duty"--AFI catalog, 1961-1970

"In the vast forest region of Oregon, Deputy Sheriff Steve Walsh arrests three teenagers--Bobbie Adams, Frank Henderson, and Roy Anderson--for the holdup of a filling station. En route to jail Bobbie produces a gun from beneath her shirt, and Walsh becomes the trio's prisoner. They abandon the sheriff's car and, by using Walsh as both hostage and guide, set out by foot through the mountainous forestland. When they stop for the night, Bobbie, aware of Walsh's growing interest in her, tries unsuccessfully to seduce him. The next day the drunken Roy tries to push Walsh off the edge of a ravine, but in the struggle Roy himself plunges to his death. Meanwhile, a search party has been organized; and when Walsh, Bobbie, and Frank reach a clearing the police are waiting. Once apprehended, the desperate and vengeful Frank falsely accuses Walsh of being intimate with Bobbie, who is still a minor. Before the argument can be settled, a forest fire breaks out, the result of a lit cigarette carelessly tossed aside by Frank. When the blaze gets out of control and sweeps through the town, Walsh herds the trapped citizens into two railway cars and, aided by Bobbie, drives the locomotive over a 200-foot-high trestle. Midway across, the train stalls, but the townspeople make their way across the ties to safety. In the panic and confusion, Frank escapes from his captors and begins climbing down the trestle. But as Walsh, Bobbie, and the last of the townspeople reach safety, the burning trestle collapses, and Frank is killed as the train crashes into the riverbed below"--AFI catalog, 1961-1970
