Allen Loved Gambling With Marvin, Savalas And Bronson
Allen found he had a lot of spare time on his hands during the 1967 movie's shoot, and was relieved to discover the cast of THE DIRTY DOZEN were also staying in the British capital.
He recalls, "They were so behind schedule. They were putting me up and paying me a fat salary and I really wasn't doing anything on the film.
"However, I was having a wonderful time playing 24-hour poker games because The Dirty Dozen was also being made in town, and Lee Marvin, Telly Savalas and Charlie Bronson were here for it."
