The same idea as the USMF thread by this title . . . but so many great war movies about non-US military, I thought I'd start one on here! I'll start by posting a screen grab from a movie. If you think you know what movie it is from ... post your guess! If you have a screengrab to share . . . feel free to post it! Don't post the title of the film, though! -grin-

 

Here is the inaugural one - chose one that should be easier than some others I want to post! ;)

Flame over India, or if you like The Northwest Passage.

 

Correct! We have the DVD of Norwest Frontier, but the paper insert says "Flame Over India". Identity crisis! :)

Nope . . . this image does show one of the people who is billed over the title, though.

OK . . . to get this kick started again . . . Numbers 2 and 4 are still up for guessing! 

 

Here is another:

I believe North West Frontier is the British title, I didn't know it had different titles for other territories ( it was titled Empress of India in Australia); it's a family favourite here. The last image posted with the chap leaning over the bridge of a ship is Gift Horse I believe, with Trevor Howard as the Captain of HMS Ballantrae, it was known as Glory at Sea in the United States.

 

Continuing the maritime theme, here's another one to guess:

Great to see some activity for this topic again! And that Cross of Iron image is terrific, I've never seen that one before. I see that actor playing the part of the ex-SS "Special Action Squad" member that was transferred to Steiner's outfit (wearing an M-43 cap and seen in profile on the left). And things ended rather painfully for him, didn't they? Ouch!

 

Not knowing the rules of this thread (if there are any), is it okay to submit an answer or guess, without having been involved in the question & answer back-and-forth beforehand? I think I know the movie that the still submitted by shemp h. came from but don't want to intrude otherwise. Unless that is not a problem.

First time I saw "Cross of Iron, it was of all places on a Kibbutz in Israel around 1979!  I knew of one lady that still had her tatoo from a concentration camp. I was really surprised they showed this there.

Amazing! Even though Cross of Iron is anti-war, surprising that it would have been shown there. Bet that was an interesting experience!

It really was fun, met volunteers from all over the world. Lived there for almost a year and a half.
