Kelly's Heroes & The Tiger Tank

Watching Kelly's Heroes tonight (Clint Eastwood, Telly Savalas, Donald Sutherland, 1970) and they have a run in with a Tiger Tank. I remember the sequence well:
  • the only way to defeat a Tiger was to shoot it directly in the rear end,
  • our heros find themselves directly behind the Tiger,
  • the Tiger is in a narrow street and cannot turn around,
  • nor can it turn it's turret because it is blocked by a wall on one side and a tree on another.
In my memory, it was from a black and white episode of Combat, and it was a very dire situation. Funny how the memory plays tricks like that.
