Summary
  • Play dirty (1968 ; color ; 117 min.) : A British Petroleum executive is assigned to work with the British Army in North Africa handling port duties for incoming fuels. This gives him the official rank of Captain in the British Army. The Colonel in charge is told he must have a British officer accompany his men on a dangerous mission 400 miles behind German lines and is saddled with the Petroleum executive. The real leader of the group doesn't need or want the British officer, who's supposed to be in charge, but he's promised an extra 2,000 British Pounds if he gets him back alive. Disguised as Italians, their trek across Rommel's Africa includes meeting and battling many kinds of enemies
  • The dogs of war (1981 ; color ; 104 min.) : Hired by an international cartel, soldier of fortune Jamie Shannon (Walken) organizes a strike force to wrest control of an impoverished but mineral rich west African nation from a madman. An intricate game ensues where double cross is the rule: Shannon and his handpicked men find themselves caught between the cartel and the dictator they were to depose. To escape this dilemma, Shannon and his men apply their own code of honor
  • The purple plain (1954 ; color ; 100 min.) : A neurotic pilot's plane crashes in Burman during World War II, forcing him to fight his way to freedom and a new sense of values
