    Both are great films.
    Kelly's Heroes has the right balance of comedy and tragedy to ensure a rollicking and entertaining war/heist movie.

    I think I recall some Advanced Squad Leader games we cooked up based on variations of "Kelly's Heroes".

    I went shopping online for Paint your Wagon DVD for my dad, they had a three movie deal for $20. So I grabbed that film, the 'Great Escape' and 'A fistful of Dollars.'

    Paint your wagon is one of my dad’s favourites films, I might grab a DVD for him to enjoy it again.

    I have Kelly’s Hero’s on my computer, I never get tired of watching it.

    Paint Your Wagon/Kelly's Heroes...

    We watched 'Paint Your Wagon' the other day, I'd forgotten how much that flim could brighten your day. A year later Clint made a film that was a little landmark for us kids, I was 13 at the time. A pop song for a theme tune, and the daftest story ever told, but a truly gripping war film... 'Kelly's Heroes'!
    We sat in the dark, engrossed, as 'real' Tigers roamed free, not pale grey M48s with daft looking black crosses stuck all over 'em. it took us years to work out they were really T34s in drag. I wonder if those original three 'Tigers' still exist, not till very recently were those vehicles bettered on the silver screen?
    We had a lovely, bone idle day in a trip to yesteryear, spending the later evening playing the soundtracks to both these magnificent films.
