I was looking at old war movies on imdb ans came across Retreat, Hell from 1952. Note the tagline in the linked poster: "…Then a bunch of husky guys with star spangled spunk took over!" If you don't know why this is funny, you are more mature than I am.

Don't worry, we were laughing about "British spunk" when I was at school back in the 1960s and 70s.
