A WALK IN THE SUN
1945, Kit Parker Films, 117 min, USA, Dir: Lewis Milestone

A platoon of WWII soldiers is sent to blow up an Italian bridge and casualties mount as they encounter enemy planes and machine guns - as well as increasing tensions among themselves. Widely considered to be one of the best and most realistic World War II movies, this classic features stellar work from Norman Lloyd, Dana Andrews, Richard Conte and others.


OCEAN'S ELEVEN
1960, Warner Brothers, 127 min, Dir: Lewis Milestone

The original Rat Pack classic, in which Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Peter Lawford and other old war buddies join forces to pull off a massive heist on New Year’s Eve. It’s the kings of cool in their prime as they infiltrate Las Vegas casinos as entertainers and cocktail waiters in a plan they think will go off without a hitch. Angie Dickinson provides the love interest and Cesar Romero plays the heavy, with a cameo by Shirley MacLaine as "Tipsy girl."
