Anybody know when it was reissued in the NYC area around 1968 or 1969 please? Channel 31, NYC ran it this weekend and it brings back some great childhood moviegoing memories.

Thanks Much.

MGM also had another double feature release of “The Dirty Dozen”, because National Screen Service had posters available on it.

THE DIRTY DOZEN did open on June 15,1967 at the Capitol and the 34th Street East in New York City.

It also opened at either the Uptown Theatre, The Avalon Theatre or the Cinema on the same day in Washington, DC.

The film opened in selected markets in larger cities on June 15,1967,but it didn’t open nationwide until July of 1967,the week during Independence Day.

FACT: The film was a huge boxoffice hit and it had some very tough competition too for the fight of the summer boxoffice of 1967….it’s rival?….the sixth film of the James Bond-007 series YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE was the second boxoffice draw too which made these two movies the highest grossing films of that year.
