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

A fairly well made, well acted film with a suspenseful and unique story, and with the fact that it was filmed during the war itself, really cool to say the least, an entertaining classic.

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