WW2 Aviation at it's best,
This review is from: Memphis Belle [DVD]  (DVD)
This film is a factually based film of a B19 bomber on its final bombing mission over Germany. After completing 30 bombing missions over Germany and getting back to their base in Suffolk, England, they would be sent back home to America and take no further part in the war.
As many people know this was hardly ever achieved, most being shot down well before the completion of their 30th mission. Well, the crew of the "Memphis Belle" achieved this feat and the film is about this achievement.
The film is superbly directed and the acting of then reletivately unknown actors is superb with authenticity taking a front seat.An acqaintance of mine who was a Bomber pilot in WW2 and who saw the film, said the whole film took him back to those dark yet glorious days due to the authenticity and attention to detail on the flying and the complete film.
No collection of WW2 DVD's would be complete without this very fine film.
