Product description

Product Description

Box set containing three classic war movies. 'The Bridge on the River Kwai' (1957) is David Lean's classic British war film based on the novel by Pierre Boulle. A group of British POWs are forced to build a bridge in Burma for the Japanese. Led by Colonel Nicholson (Alec Guinness) they not only build the bridge but organise the whole building programme and are proud of the final result. However, unbeknownst to the POWs, a British commando team has been given a mission to destroy it. 'Das Boot' (1981) is a gripping account of a German U-96 submarine in action during World War Two. The crew's long periods of boredom are contrasted with the claustrophobic terror they experience when engaging the enemy. In 'The Guns of Navarone' (1961), in 1943 a group of mismatched Allied soldiers are sent to sabotage two powerful Nazi guns situated on a Greek island. If their mission fails, the guns will wipe out the 2,000 British soldiers who are attempting to evacuate civilians further down the coast. The mission is led by the dispassionate Captain Mallory (Gregory Peck), whose clinical approach does not find favour with explosives expert Corporal Miller (David Niven). Meanwhile, the group's Greek patriot guide Andrea Stavros (Anthony Quinn) is nursing a grudge against Mallory for an old injustice.
