Sergeant Clyde Bowren: Everybody's slipping on soap around here!


Although US military personnel were executed on British soil during WW2, the hanging sequence in The Dirty Dozen shows US Military Policemen carrying out the execution. In reality, they were not legally allowed to do this. Instead, the hangings were carried out by British hangmen such as Albert Pierrepoint, with American personnel acting only as official witnesses.

Crazy Credits

The opening credits don't occur until 10 minutes into the film. While it is common nowadays for films to have a pre-credits sequence, it was considered innovative in 1967.
