Over the years, 4 movies eventually showed they had the right stuff to carry me through these laziest of lazy afternoons. All World War II movies that have been watched again and again and again. Each time, just as satisfying as the last. In no particular order these hallmark movies are:
- The Dirty Dozen
- The Guns of Navarone
- Where Eagles Dare
- Kelly's Heroes
Each one a classic. And all four have been on the TCM channel in the last 48 hours as part of their Memorial Day weekend. Where Eagles Dare has probably had the most Sunday afternoon viewings. My favourite is probably Kelly's Heroes mainly because of Donald Sutherland. But I'd take any of these all-stars on any given Sunday.
