VIDEO Plus+: 89843
Subtitled





A host of familiar faces that you can't quite put a name to keep their upper lips stiff as our boys try to destroy a French chateau containing the Nazis' super-duper doodlebug, the V3, in this derivative Second World War drama. David McCallum makes light of his character's awful name (Quint Munroe), playing an RAF pilot who must comfort his missing friend's wife and lead the mission. Only some nice flying sequences and the mellifluous support of Charles Gray pass muster.

Directed by: Boris Sagal
Filmed in: 1968



Quint Munroe - David McCallum


Beth Scott - Suzanne Neve


Squadron Leader David Scott - David Buck


Flight Lieutenant Douglas Shelton - David Dundas


Wing Commander Penrose - Dinsdale Landen


Air Commodore Hufford - Charles Gray


Father Bellague - Michael Anthony

Watch it for the Mossies only. As a film it is truly awful. A lot of the a/c footage is from 633 Squadron too.

Having seen it before I am glad that I shall miss it this time.

Cheers!

What he said.

It truly sucks. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

The bit where the "German fighters" do right-angled turns is hilarious, though. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

A truly awful film that desrves to be taken out to mid-Atlantic and deep sixed.
The horrendous flying scenes were cringeworthy in the extreme,used crappy fake 109s and models, and to be honest looked more like an episode of Thunderbirds than anything else. TBH McCallum's acting made even the Tracys look like Royal Shakespeare actors.
In a word it was GRIM. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif
