In The Dirty Dozen, there's a scene where Col. Everett Dasher Breed, played by Robert Ryan, tries to take over command of the Dirty Dozen's operation from Maj. John Reisman [Lee Marvin]. In the end Reisman climbs above the fence with a gun and gets back control of The Dirty Dozen. The outcome is that The Dirty Dozen rally behind Reisman and are pretty much happy campers for the mission.
My question is: was this an organic scene? Or did Maj. John Reisman and Col. Everett Dasher Breed engineer the outcome to get The Dirty Dozen to see Maj. John Reisman as a cool guy who was on their side?
