Very underrated and entertaining film.

Rickles looks so much like U.S. General Matthew Ridgway, it's almost creepy. Look him up if you've never heard of him.

Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?

I remember reading that Donald Sutherland said that in all his years and with all his work, Oddball is the one he gets most people coming up and telling them how they are a big fans of. That dads and sons would come up and say they loved Kelly’s Heroes more than anything.

He also said a lot of armed forces guys who either knew tank teams or were part of them said it was probably one of the closest to reality character they had seen in film. They would come up and say ‘Man every guy I knew who operated tanks were really off kilter just like you in the movie. They were a weird bunch.”

Oddball will forever be remembered as one of the zaniest, weirdest, funniest and BEST characters in cinema history.

That's cool, thanks for sharing that; I'll have to search around for it. I've heard that Donald Sutherland is kind of a-hole but damn if he isn't a tremendously entertaining actor, and this is easily my favorite of his characters. I assume he really was a bit stoned for these shoots, but he is a great actor, after all, so who knows.

All of my relatives and their friends that served in real-deal combat have all been deeply traumatized from the experience. I think that actually speaks to their humanity, and what is left of it.

This cinematic gem has been my go-to sick-in-bed moviegoer as long as I can remember, always makes you feel better, especially when paired with nachos

It was apparently originally about an hour longer. All the stuff that was cut was about the point of war and the lot of the common soldiers and how different that was to the senior officers. I would really like to see that original but (so far) it is lost.

I’ve heard about the longer version too, would like to see it. I don’t know of the movie ever being seen with the extra time or if it even exists as a whole production though.

Rickles was a true master- and anyone who hasn't seen Kelly's Heroes needs to find it and watch it! Great movie!
