  • Dam busters director. The final cut

    Michael Joseph Anderson, director of the 1955 classic The Dam Busters has died. A stirring film. and not his fault the bouncing bomb was still classified when it was made so that some of the scenes are wrong (still sold a lot of Airfix kits)

    The long toll of the brave
    Is not lost in darkness
    Over the fruitful earth
    And athwart the seas
    Hath passed the light of noble deeds
    Unquenchable forever.

      I hadn't realised until I saw the credits again that the screenplay was written by R. C. Sherriff who wrote the 1928 classic WW1 drama Journey's End.

          Did any of you guys see the version with a B17 spliced in that gave the impression that an Army Air Corp crew participated in the raid.

          It was only about .20 secs long but was yanked out by the censorship board,.. I saw it once as a teenager.....

            Yep, seen that... bit of a naff effort to appeal to a, hoped for, Yank audience!
