The Finest Hours Photos

Movie Info

The Finest Hours is a superior Winston Churchill documentary, narrated by Orson Welles. Much of the film plays like an affectionate eulogy, though Churchill was not quite dead yet in 1964. Filmmaker Peter Baylis serves up an excellent amalgam of family photos, interviews, and newsreel footage. Refreshingly, the film does not skimp on Churchill's personal quirks and private demons. The Finest Hours has in recent years become a perennial of "cultural" cable-TV services.
