Looking back over this list, I realized that I had somehow missed The Rat Patrol. Not that I would have voted for it but it did provide me with some wonderfully entertaining moments when I was in an Army evac hospital in Japan.

Every evening we would gather at the end of the ward for The Rat Patrol in Japanese, translated for us by a couple of guys from the Hawaiian National Guard. I suspect that their translations including a certain bit of editorializing but who cared?

And there was always the moment when Eric Braeden (acting under his real name – Hans Gudegast) would spot the jeeps zooming across the desert, lower his field glasses, and mutter "Ah, so desu! Ratu Patroru!"
