They were misfits, rebels…and heroes! Screen greats William Holden (Stalag 17) and Cliff Robertson (633 Squadron) topline this riveting World War II saga based on the true story of the First Special Service Force. Capturing the drama of combat with outstanding cinematography, The Devil’s Brigade is a thrilling tribute to this renowned fighting unit. Lt. Col. Robert T. Frederick (Holden) takes on the daunting task of melding a renegade group of American and Canadian recruits into a crack team of commando warriors. Frederick’s superiors doubt the rookies until Frederick volunteers them for a perilous attack on a Nazi stronghold in the mountains. His men will be outnumbered and outgunned, but that’s a fair fight to The Devil’s Brigade. Action veteran Andrew V. McLaglen (The Wild Geese, ffolkes) helms this top-notch adventure yarn with a strong cast including Vince Edwards (The Victors), Richard Jaeckel (The Dirty Dozen), Carroll O’Connor (TV’s All in the Family), Dana Andrews (Laura), Michael Rennie (The Lost World), Richard Dawson (TV’s Hogan’s Heroes), Claude Akins (Tentacles) and Harry Carey Jr. (The Rare Breed).
