Want to know where Inglourious Basterds came from? Sign up, read on…
1943, and five hardened criminals are sent to the Balkans, to convince an Italian general to rally the partisans against the Nazis. Cue stuff blowing up, monks carrying machine guns, and Mickey Rooney’s Irish accent! Beating The Dirty Dozen to the slaughter by three full years, and featuring a cast to die for, its influence has conscripted all, from Quentin Tarantino to Sylvester Stallone’s The Expendables. Time to fall in!
