4.0 out of 5 stars Thank God for British war movies! This is one of the best., 26 May 2000
This review is from: The Dam Busters [VHS] [1955] (VHS Tape)
Richard Todd plays a convincing Guy Gibson and casting Michael Redgrave as Barnes Wallis was an excellent choice. A thoroughly entertaining and generally accurate portrayal of how Wallis' conviction that the main Ruhr dams could be breached was carried out. The film includes actual footage of the trials carried out on the English coast. Students of military history, as well as those who simply want a good yarn well told, will enjoy this. (Incidentally, as it is an historical account, I see no reason why references to terms that may be politically-incorrect today need to be erased. If that credo was adopted there would be few accurate historical records available in the year 2000).

Here, here, all the best WWII movies are British made without the inevitable U.S. candy floss and dumming down process. DBs is one of the best. (Dublin, Ireland)
