5.0 out of 5 stars
British War Movie at its best, 1 Jun 2004
A superbly presented edition of this movie, vibrant sharp colour,excellent story and superb acting.
Peter Finch as Langsdorff , Antony Quayle as Harwood , Bernard Lee as Captain Dove et al. ....Look out for Antony Newley ,Barry Foster and John LeMesurier in supporting roles.
The tale is of the persuit,trapping and ultimate destruction of the 'pocket battleship'Admiral Graf Spee by a combined British and New Zealand cruiser squadron.... The first victory of the war in December 1939.
A beautiful movie .... they don't make 'em like this any more.
