    Never has an adaptation annoyed me so much with skipped details.

    Not only a great propaganda film but a triumph of cinematography too. The sequence where the baby's pram is bouncing down the steps in the midst of the fighting has been 'borrowed' so many times it doesn't bear thinking about.

    A number of the historical-type magazines carry ads for a company that sells classic war films on VHS or DVD. I recall seeing it for sale there and thinking about it but wasnt willing to pay 29.95 for it.

    Cant believe you didnt have Triumph of the will on your list.

    Top Gun. Didn't Navy recruitment jump 50% or something after it came out?

    No, the film made in 1944. It was essentially a ww2 properganda film.

    Also did the americans consider "mrs miniver" as a properganda film for their war effort, especially against the isolationists.
    I've always thought Mrs Miniver was a great flick
