Double Feature Friday: Charles Bronson and Lee Marvin

I missed Monday, guys, so I'm giving you a double header to conclude Charles Bronson week.  Both movies star Charles Bronson and Lee Marvin.

Here is our first Bronson/Marvin coupling in 1967's The Dirty Dozen, one of the greatest action movies of all time. A no nonsense major (Lee Marvin) recruits a group of military prisoners with life sentences for a suicide mission. The film also stars Ernest Borgnine, Jim Brown, John Cassavetes, George Kennedy and Telly Savalas.

This second ad is for 1981's Death Hunt. This movie was Hollywood's depiction of the largest manhunt in Canadian history.

Other Bronson movies:

- St Ives (1976)
- 10 to Midnight (1983)
- Murphy's Law (1986)

Here's the Dirty Dozen trailer:

  1. Now THAT is a double header! I love those Lee Marvin flicks. I used to watch the Big Red One all the time as a kid.
