Film Review

If you love to see old planes of the German's and British, this is the film for you. There is excellent photography and you actually see how the German's bombed London and destroyed many parts of the city and also how people ran to the air-raid shelters. There is a husband and wife who have joined the RAF and it clearly shows the problems of a married couple both serving in the same unit. There were many young British gals who joined up to serve their country and it showed the dramatic strain it had on all these very young girls.

The great Olivier shares the screen with Michael Cain, Curt Jurgens, Trevor Howard, Chr…

What is Guy Hamilton's 1969 film entitled Battle of Britain?

I think Guy Hamilton, with this project, has made something that combines an historical retelling; that balances front-line subject matter with command centre subject matter; shows us how the Battle of Britain and consequent bombings affected all sorts of people and just generally delivers on an action level as well. The film is a celebration but at the same time a reminder; it is a recognition, but at the same time an action film and it does hold up in it own little way.I love one of the posters for the film the IMDb and has listed on the film's page and indeed, Wikipedia contains the same image. It's a long and whispy British flag running rings around a black and red Nazi flag of similar style as one climbs victoriously into the sky and the other d…
