Listen up Buttercup! There's a movie you need to watch....
So, TAKE FIVE!
So we were talking about movies staring the “Commando Helmet Net” that everybody associates with the movie “Kelley’s Heroes”. If you haven’t seen this movie – Shame On You!
Now, I have another favorite that the “Commando Helmet Net” stars in that you may not be aware of.
Have you seen Steve McQueen in “Hell is for Heroes”?
Filmed in 1962 a young Steve McQueen plays Pvt. Reese, an embittered soldier who has just been sent back to join a group of weary GIs of the 95th Infantry Division. They are unexpectedly ordered back into combat at a position opposite a pillbox on the Siegfried Line in Belgium. Recently demoted back to private from staff sergeant for drinking, Reese chafes under all authority. He is a natural leader, and convinces his squad to keep the Germans at bay by making them believe that their small outfit is larger than it really is. Reese knows it's only a matter of time before the Germans figure out the truth, and.....well you need to watch it.
This film has a few other stars you might recognize……
