The Dambusters (1954)


Wartime Heroes

The Dambusters trio binoculars 50.jpgMichael Redgrave plays the brilliant bumbling professor who invented the bounce bomb in the the British WWII docu-drama, "The Dambusters". Richard Todd made his name in film by playing this RAF wartime hero, Wing Commander Guy Gibson. Certainly an interesting find on TVOntario's SNAM for war film buffs, but a bit of a "sleeper" for me.

In the original review, the film was paired with "The Guns of Navarone" (1961). Read the original review here.
