The Secret Invasion (The Dubious Patriots)
Producer/director Roger Corman briefly abandoned Edgar Allan Poe for The Secret Invasion, a commendable attempt to make a war epic on a "B" budget. The story is a scaled-down precursor to The Dirty Dozen: Five criminals are given a chance at a pardon by agreeing to participate in a suicide mission for British Intelligence. They are smuggled into Yugoslavia (where this film was made) to conduct several commando raids against the Nazi invaders. The quintet is comprised of veterans of internationally-produced war films: Stewart Granger, Raf Vallone, Mickey Rooney, Edd "Kookie"… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"I'll gladly take this bargain-basement 95 minutes of exploitation over the 150 minutes of The Dirty Dozen any day."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
