Based on E.M. Nathanson's best-selling 1965 novel, The Dirty Dozen, this 1967 film's cast includes several actual World War II vets: Charles Bronson, Telly Savalas, Ernest Borgnine, Robert Webber, Robert Ryan and Clint Walker.

That's the name master cellist Yo-Yo Ma chose to give his muscially-complex collaboration with bluegrass fiddler Stuart Duncan, bassist Edgar Meyer and mandolin master Chris Thile.
