Movie Info

On its way back from a raid on the city of Stuttgart, Germany, a British bomber is shot down over Nazi-held Holland. Parachuting into Dutch farmlands under cover of darkness, the six-member crew, led by stalwart pilot John Glyn Haggard (Hugh Burden) and crusty Yorkshireman co-pilot Tom Earnshaw (Eric Portman), connects with members of the local resistance, led by schoolteacher Els (Pamela Brown), who shelter the Brits from their Nazi inquisitors as they make their way towards freedom.

    One of the most interesting wartime propaganda films ever made and why? Because this British production is actually a commercial for another country altogether. The crew of a shot-up Brit bomber goes down and must make their way across Nazi-occupied Holland to get home. Do get this done the team depends on the Dutch Resistance, and so the piece is about what the Nederlanders do get the boys home. Thrilling, while also being the most Dutch I've heard spoken outside of a Dutch production itself. Jolly good show!

    i'm a big sucker for briitish war propaganda and this is one of the best. only the second film for powell and pressburger as the archers and it's clear they make a great team. the film involves a bomber crew forced to bail out over holland and try to make it home with help from the dutch resistance. gripping stuff

    Might be the best WWII film made during the war. A tribute to the Dutch resistance as well as the RAF.

    A great Powell and Pressburger film, overshadowed by 'The Red Shoes', 'A Matter Of Life and Death' etc, but should not be missed. The film was intended as a propaganda piece and has a documentary like feel. Also, two names to look out for. Peter Ustinov in his first film role as the Priest, plus David Lean, who was editor.
