Hell Is For Heroes, Don Siegel (1962)

Peckinpahesque in its steely indifference to violence (though not in its stick-simple cinematography). Featuring Steve McQueen on the brink of blossom, plus Bobby Darin, James Coburn, and — this is kind of weird — Bob Newhart, essentially playing Bob Newhart. He even does a couple of his telephone call shticks.
