Donald Sutherland, action man

Trivia says that publicity claimed it was the first film to have Sutherland in a fistfight and his first action movie. (In a parenthesis, it also mentions that he had been in The Dirty Dozen by this point.) Since I distinctly remember him knocking the crap out of someone in The Eagle has Landed, and he was in plenty of movies of various kinds in the '60s before he became famous (Billion Dollar Brain, Die Die My Darling, etc), is it fair to say this isn't true at all?
