This is an exceedingly good flying-war film. Lovely photography, first-class direction, straightforward production and sincere acting from people who know their job put it at the top of its class so far.
Audience Reviews for One of Our Aircraft Is Missing
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.

|Jo de Vries:||You see. That's what you're doing for us. Can you hear them running for shelter? Can you understand what that means to all the occupied countries? To enslaved people, having it drummed into their ears that the Germans are masters of the Earth. Seeing these masters running for shelter. Seeing them crouching under tables. And hearing that steady hum night after night. That noise which is oil for the burning fire in our hearts.|
