Yes indeed. I forgot about "The Guns of Navarone" and the sequel, "Force 10 From Navarone". There is also "Twelve O'Clock High", "Where Eagles Dare", and "The Longest Day". Though with a WW II timeline, the fictional "Kelly's Heroes" is good for some laughs. It was tongue-in-cheek an anti Vietnam movie as the director had been blackballed during the McCarthy era. Don't care for anything made in last 20 years or so. "Saving Private Ryan" had the beginning very realistic, but I don't care for Hanks nor the rest of the story. Bridge/Kwai had its famous Col. Nicholson's Theme being whistled all the time by me and my brother after seeing it in the 60's at a drive-in.
