Produced by Academy Award-winner David Puttnam ("Chariots of Fire," "The Killing Fields"), this panoramic adventure based on actual events of the young crew of the "Memphis Belle," one of America's B-17 "Flying Fortresses" assigned to fly missions over Nazi occupied Europe, recreates the riveting tale of their final and most dangerous mission. Included in the ensemble cast of today's brightest young talents are Matthew Modine, Eric Stoltz, Billy Zane, Sean Astin, and jazz singer/musician Harry Connick, Jr. in his film debut. Also starring is two-time Oscar-nominee and Golden Globe and Emmy-winner John Lithgow. Featuring a beautiful score by George Fenton, Rex Reed calls this "thrilling!...it will make you cheer" and Sneak Previews calls it "...heart stopping...an unforgettable experience. One of the year's best!"
Love This Movie
This movie is one of the best aircraft-dogfighting films there is about World War 2. Very accurate and beautifully put together. My only complaint would be that I can only rent this film and not purchase it on itunes.
Fast Paced War Movie
My spouse has been looking for this movie as a download for ages. We were thrilled to see it available on iTunes. We really enjoyed the movie and were riveted the entire time. Story line was interesting and fast moving, and the aerial battle scenes were well done. This is a great war movie, which will keep your attention. I highly recommend.
A True Classic In Every Sense
Most people do not know that the US Army Air Corps lost more men than any other branch during WWII. This movie helps bring tribute to these heros who sacrificed everything at such a young age because their country was in need. This is the greatest generation, period. This was a time when men would commit suicide if they were 4F and not allowed to enlist for the war effort. This movie (in my opinion) gives great tribute to these American heros. Today the word "hero" is thrown around in the media for the most mediocre actions. These men are the true definition of heroism.
