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.


Critic Reviews for The Finest Hours

All Critics (1)

  • Documentaries, by their very nature, are informative, seldom entertaining. That there is entertainment in The Finest Hours, a very informative documentary, is to the credit of both the film's subject and the men responsible for the motion picture.
