Their Finest Hour: Five British WWII Classics 04/04/20

Film Movement Classics

Can a war movie be reassuring in a time of crisis?  Each of the films in this excellent collection stress people working together: to repel invaders, escape from or attack the enemy, and just to survive in sticky situations. All are inspirational in that they see cooperation, organization and leadership doing good work. See the ‘other’ great escape picture (The Colditz Story,) the original account of Dunkirk ( Dunkirk ’58,) and the aerial bombing movie that inspired the final battle in Star Wars (The Dam Busters). Plus a tense ‘what if?’ invasion tale (Went The Day Well?,) and a desert trek suspense ordeal that’s one of the best war films ever (Ice Cold In Alex). On Blu-rayfrom Film Movement Classics.
