The Dam Busters (1955)

Recommended Posts

Playing around in the new look, so thought I would create a new topic and review a movie. 

 

The Dam Busters (1955)

Starring Richard Todd, Michael Redgrave, Ursula Jeans, and Basil Sydney.

 

The story of Operation Chastise and the dropping of the bouncing bombs. This is a fabulous story, a fabulous film and very well acted! Richard Todd is great as WC Gibson and Michael Redgrave as Barnes Wallis. Don't want to spoil too much of it, as it is one of those movies that has you on the edge of your seat! Really, really worth watching if you are interested in the raid, or British bombers or the bouncing bombs, or any of the actors! All-in-all, totally worth the time! The bomb's development is so fascinating! 

 

The DVD from the "British War Collection"  set is an excellent restoration and features the original uncensored version in widescreen.
