Qui connait cette série? J'ai 4 épisodes et je dois dire que c'est excellent!
Il existe des dvd zone 1, mais pas de vf ni de sous-titres.
Niveau réalisateur il y a eu du beau monde : Robert Altman, Ted Post, Burt Kennedy, et des guest stars comme Bronson, Coburn, Marvin... :shock:

4 épisodes :

-Le Canon
Written by Esther and Bob Mitchell
Directed by Michael Caffey
Produced by Richard Caffey

Aired September 13, 1966
Season 5, Episode 1
Syndication Order 128

Synopsis
The squad, backed by a half-track and a tank, must destroy a German field artillery piece before the company moves forward. But Germans destroy the tank in first assault.

On foot, they attack an artillery piece and caputure it. The tanker Sgt. Hagen is a liability to the squad. Not used to thinking like a foot soldier, Hagen acts like "he's still got that tank wrapped around you." Saunders wants to use the captured gun in place of the lost tank to destroy their initial target. But Hagen wants to destroy the gun. The gun killed his crew and his tank.

In getting the gun across a rickety wooden bridge, Littlejohn falls and is injured. They find a convenient stray plowhorse to replace Littlejohn and yoke it to the gun.

Meanwhile, a German patrol discovers their artillery piece is missing (don't you just hate when that happens?). They track the patrol and engage them. During the fight the horse bolts, dragging the gun over Pvt. Weed, killing him.

With only thirty minutes before the American advance, the squad still must drag the gun up a steep hill. Half way up, the gun slips and rolls downhill, breaking the gunsight. Saunders cajoles the despairing men to continue the backbreaking effort.

Finally dragging the gun to within range, the squad lays a barrage on the lakeside targets, destroying the bunker. His mission accomplilshed, Saunders finally destroys the gun that has caused him such grief. All are glad they don't have to drag it back to their lines.

Review
Three bayonets for this simple Man vs. Technology tale beautifully embroidered with some stunning location photography and big- budget special effects.

In this episode, the cast and crew escape the familiar backlots and travel to location. Though the subject of the story is fairly intimate, the location shooting is broad and expansive. Long shots of vineyards make the squad's struggling with the gun seem tiny and insignificant against the vast landscape.

The final battle provides an opportunity for some spectacular pyrotechnics. The multiple explosions by the lake spew flame, smoke and oil drums over 100 feet in the air. The fiery display is truly lovely, a pyromaniac's delight, but was it really necessary? It seems contrary to the spirit of the early season COMBAT! episodes where the drama was character-based rather than special effects-based. This fiery episode started Combat!'s only color season off with a bang!

Though the locations and effects were interesting to watch, they seem misplaced in this story. The episode works best when the focus is narrower, looking at the grim battle of the squad against this gun. The tank Sergeant, Hagen, wants at first to destroy the field piece. He hates this weapon that killed his crew and destroyed his tank. Kirby doesn't like the gun just for its size, "They couldn't have a 37, they had to have this big moose!" He belittles Hagen's worry, "It's just a hunk of metal." But the gun develops a personality of its own as the squad is forced to drag it up hills and through the rough French terrain. It finally claims the life of Private Weed, almost as though demanding a sacrifice beneath its wheels. Even the easy-going Littlejohn wants this weapon destroyed. But Saunders is determined to make this gun do his bidding, even if it kills the squad. Again, there's more at stake here, the lives of Lieutenant Hanley and the rest of the company depend on it!

-Mascarade
Written by Anthony Wilson
Directed by John Peyser
Produced by Gene Levitt

Aired OCT-01-1963 - Season 2, Episode 3
Syndication Order: 40

Review
In "Masquerade," two German infiltrators try to make it to battalion headquarters under the pretense of escorting a "captured" German Colonel. Their plans are complicated first by a landmine that disables their jeep and then by a suspicious Saunders. In a clever script by Anthony Wilson, Kanger (played by James Coburn) matches wits with Saunders in a deadly game of survival.

Dan Stafford plays Lt. Comstock, an infiltrator not quite up to the task. Though his "American" passes muster, he is betrayed by his humanity. He blanches at the sight of a dead German in the street; he's unwilling to sacrifice his commanding officer for the sake of the mission; and when Germans attack the town, he is unable to fully play GI and gun down his fellow soldiers. Kanger is unbothered by such moral dilemmas. There's no veneer of civilization on this predator. And when Comstock endangers Kanger's survival, Kanger dispatches him without hesitation.

Coburn plays this infiltrator with a mesmerizing menace, adopting animalistic mannerisms and a keen, predator's gaze. His manner is as easy as his smile as he deftly turns away suspicions, or turns on the offensive when the questioning takes a dangerous turn. My favorite scene is between him and Saunders in the barn; Coburn turns the tables on Saunders' subtle interrogation, becoming the verbal attacker. The tension of this duel of words is heightened by the body language, as the two constantly shift to attack positions as they speak; the threat in their physical movements is in sharp contrast with their conversational banter. Morrow's Saunders is a match for Kanger, meeting every deft ploy with his own sharp wit and cunning. Ultimately Kanger is defeated by his own arrogance -- the confidence in his superiority to those American suckers.

-Acte de bravoure

Far from the Brave
Rating:

4 bayonets
Written and Directed by Burt Kennedy
Produced by Robert Blees
First aired 30-Oct-1962
(Episode 5 of Season 1)

SYNOPSIS:

Private Dulaney, fresh from his assignment as Army cook, is the latest green replacement for the Squad. Saunders’ assigns him to take the Browning Automatic Rifle (B.A.R.), replacing Saunders’ recently slain friend, Grady Long. As Saunders’ squad is left behind to cover the main force’s retreat, the soldiers look over the elderly replacement with uncertainty and hostility. Alone in a personal grief that he will not let anyone breach, Saunders’ faces the meaning of loss and how you measure the value of life and friendship.

REVIEW:

In his second Combat! script, Burt Kennedy again nails the show’s characters and the emotions of fighting men in a tightly crafted script. Unfortunatley, this is the episode that sent Shecky Greene off the show. A shame, because he only got better and better with each episode. His scene with Delaney over the chicken are tender, realistic, and rises above the obvious humor of a soldier and a chicken.

Vic Morrow and Rick Jason both excell at acting "between the lines." Their scene after the funeral is an excellent example. More is said in the silences about what they are thinking and what they are feeling that is said in the dialogue. Combat! always told stories cinematically. It is a series that really requires "viewers." This is not radio with pictures. So much of the story is in the visuals. Combat! dared to go long stretches without a single line of English dialogue, and sometimes without any dialogue at all.



Burt Kennedy scripts provided both great dialogue and great silences. All the actors took advantage of both in this four-bayonet episode. Whether it is a quiet scene between Billy and Littlejohn or a brazen outburst by Kirby, this episode hits all the right marks.

As in so many of his stories, this Burt Kennedy episode celebrates the glory within the most humble person, and shows the wisdom and strength that comes from adversity. Saunders, the soldier who sets himself up as the pillar of strength to all those around him, discovers his own feet of clay and in the end, girds them in steel armor and in the fragile memories of two B.A.R. men who passed briefly through his command.

NOTES, ODDITIES, AND BLOOPERS:

Cpt. Powers is in charge of King Company, not Cpt. Jampel.
When Dick Peabody puts the pin back in the grenade, it does not quite fit back in the hole. Viewers who look closely, can see that he’s mumbling "Son of a bitch."

ABOUT FILMING THE EPISODE:

Tom Lowell remembers filming the escape sequence: "We were running down this street with pots blowing off, it was my first experience with that stuff. Those things were really scary, because you were right next to them when they went off. I was in fear of stepping in the wrong place and stepping on one of those things. But we had one of the best special effects crews in the business. [...] So we were running from that French town clock, down the street toward that bridge that is in just about every episode. And, just to the right, was this giant bay where they had the Bounty, because they were shooting Mutiny on the Bounty at the same time. So they had to position the cameras so they didn’t hit the Bounty. We always tried to sneak down and watch Marlon Brando work. But he was always having a temper tantrum that day, so we never saw him."

-Le Pont de Chalon
Written by Bob & Esther Mitchell
Directed by Ted Post
First aired 17-Sep-1963 (Episode 1 of Season 2)
Produced by Gene Levitt
SYNOPSIS:

On a mission with a hard-nosed demolition expert (Sgt. Turk, played by Lee Marvin), Saunders mother-hen's his men, and in the end, even Sergeant Turk. While behind enemy lines, Turk shows his contempt for the squad's ineptitude and a mutual hatred develops between the sergeants. Saunders' men are picked off one by one, until only the two sergeants remain to complete the mission.

REVIEW:

Guest Star Lee Marvin is superb as the sergeant-with-an-attitude who makes Saunders' life miserable. Marvin was larger than life both on camera and off.

Rick Jason was surprised to see Marvin do a guest stint. After a three-year run as star of the series "M Squad," in which he was to share in the profits, Marvin should not have needed the money. But Marvin confided in Jason that the books for the series showed no profits, so Lee Marvin was again working series, but trying to select only good shows.

An ex-Marine, Lee Marvin brought touches of realism to his role. Marvin saw action in WWII in the Pacific and was wounded in the battle of Saipan. In "Bridge at Chalons," he is completely natural as a man of arms. He holds his weapon like someone familiar with the feel. He added the rubber inner tube around his helmet, just as he had done with his own helmet in the Pacific.

ABOUT FILMING THE EPISODE:

When asked about guest stars on the show, Lee Marvin is the first one all the actors and crew mention. "I always thought Lee Marvin was so cool," says Tom Lowell. "The way he came in and had his rifle slung that way. Remember the way he had his elbows looped through the strap. That was so cool. I tried to do that for every show after that and Dick would look down at me and say, 'Don't even try it.' After Lee Marvin came on, everyone wanted a rubber band wrapped around their helmet."

Jack Hogan about Lee Marvin: "I remember Lee Marvin as one of the most bright military guys and a fantastic actor. After work, the Retake Room (a bar just off the MGM lot behind the Thalberg building) was busy when he was there."

"Lee Marvin was a kick in the tail," says Conlan Carter. "He was a piece of work, boy. The fun part of him was not so much in the acting, though he was good and he did what he did well. But he was a hard drinker. After the shoot was over for the day, man, could he put them down. Tell the stories! And he had incredible recovery. He could drink to one, two, three o'clock in the morning and show up on the set the next day and look like he'd never been out."

Georg Fenady says, "I was still an assistant then. I made the mistake of trying to stay with him one night. That man had a hollow leg. At two o'clock in the morning I'm staggering out to my car and he says 'Where are you going, I know a place to go.' I said, 'Lee, we have to get up in two hours.' I left him, and he went wherever he went. The next day, at seven in the morning, he put on all of his equipment -- backpack, helmet, and rifle -- and stood three feet from the camera all day, standing tall. Incredible. What an interesting man. A really interesting man."

Si quelqu'un peut me le confirmer il me semble que l'acteur principal de la sèrie était l'acteur regretté Vic Morrow qui était l'un des voyous dans le film noir Graine de Violence avec le regretté Glenn Ford ,Sidney Poitier et anne Francis,la sèrie était passer il y a très longtemps sur la chaîne câblée" Série club" que je ne regarde plus maintenant à cause des séries ou téléfilms français d'aujourd'hui qui sont très mauvais et non rien a voir avec les séries cultes c'est comme ça que certaine chaînes perdent des abonnés et je trouve ça dommage car autrefois Séries Club était très bien et elle passait de très très bonne séries, pourquoi maintenant elle passe des séries ringards et surtout françaises? :mrgreen: C'est mon coup de g.....e!!!
