21 of the Best Movies for Anyone Who Ever Wanted to Fly

By 25 mayo, 2022No Comments

Guy Hamilton, a director best known for his James Bond films, brought some of that style to his depiction of the 1940 air campaign during which the British scored a victory over the German Luftwaffe that effectively ended Hitler’s hopes of directly invade Britain. The all-star cast is laden with big-name Brtitish actors of the day (including Michael Caine, Ian McShane, Laurence Olivier, and Christopher Plummer), but its emphasis on historical accuracy (at least as events were understood in 1969) sets it apart. The filmmakers sourced well over a hundred authentic vintage Spitfires and Hawker Hurricanes, restoring the planes and making flyable the ones that could be made so. It all builds to a climactic air battle over London, one of the most grandiose ever put on film.
