Z: lw THE SECONP LEAP... g jl p j to -: a MOVIES 'Dirty Pozen' Moves Fast Dn Tough, By WANDA HALE "The Dirty Dozen," possibly the most unique war drama ever filmed, opened last night at the Capitol Theatre, to the loudest blast of -applause ever heard on old Broadway. Orifrinality is the keynote f the E. M Kathanson story produced by Kenneth Hyman and directed by Robert Aldrich with spectacular effectiveness. An abundance of hilarious humor, in-jetced by Mr. Aldrich, the star, Lee Marvin and the cast, Is a blessed relief from the strain f irory details and gTim aspects of war, fought by a mere handful of American on foreign soil. THE FIGHTERS in this ease are not the jrood-lookinjr, ethical GIs of our acquaintance. They are hardened convicts who have been court-martialed for crimes such as murder, rape and robbery, and are given the chance to redeem themselves by carrying out a near-suicidal mission just prior to the D-Day invasion. The object of attack is a chateau in Normandy, quarters for a large number of high ranking ( Nazi officers waiting compla cently in luxury for victory over the Allies. The idea is to blow i up the chateau as a moraie weakening gesture. IX COMMAND of this hostile group, men known by number. not by name, is the toughest, most sadistic officer in the United States Army, a Major Keisman, played by Lee Marvin, a natural for the role. Forced to do the job, the major is given complete authority, no questions asked. Reviewing these criminals taken from a prison in England, the major makes his stand quite clear by announcing his. intentions. Any trouble from them and he will blow their brains out. It appears to be an impossible achievement, whipping this dirty dozen into shape, to make them forget their grievances, to think and act as a unit to be trusted in their mission. As soon as they learn that the major has faith in their ability, they comply as a whole, doing their utmost to show their gratitude. THE DIFFICULT process Is enlivened by uproarously funny incidents. War games are played unfairly but won from a crack company under command of a ; colonel whose guts the major fjj & , 1 THE CUTTING INSTRUCTIONS gTJj Qf AlNNlEYNOA 1 1 ARE ILLOGICAL. nTlCfV"' L I RCTIREFRCM (m I'LL DO IT MY ) lJJ f Mx fj WijiV " " " , Original Film "The Dirty Dozen," a Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer release in Met-trocolor. Produced by Kenneth Hyman and directed by Robert Aldrich from a screen play by Nunnally Johnson and Lukas Heller, based on a novel by E. M. Nathanson. Presented at the Loew's Capitol and 34th St. East Theatres. Running time: 2 hours, 30 minutes.

Posing one of his men, the most stupid looking, as a general who, incognito, reviews the troops, is another highly amusing sequence. Ready for the mission, the major and his men get down to the business for which he has trained them. Here, suspense begins to gain momentum until it reaches an almost unbearable pitch. There is humor, too, in this high-tension finale, but little. The bloody business of blowing up the chateau is at hand and they come through gloriously, and those who do not return die heroes, not criminals. A magnificent sight the explosion is, magnificent for the winning side.
