Summary
  • Commandos strike at dawn (1942) (100 min.) : A dramatic World War II story of a simple Norwegian fisherman who finds his quiet coastal village shattered by the Nazi invasion. He trains and mobilizes the villagers to fight and they intend to stop the German attacks
  • The prisoner (1955) (93 min.) : Following World War II, a popular cardinal is arrested as a traitor to the state. His will is strong, but so is that of his inquisitor who wants to destroy the cardinal and his power over the people he serves. Prepare for a bold example of corruption, power, and faith
  • Bitter victory (1957) (102 min.) : British Army officer Major Brand has been assigned a daring commando raid against General Rommel's stronghold in Libya. But Captain Leith, who is assigned to him, was a former lover of his wife. As tensions rise and the mission begins, Brand's cowardice will be called out as we see who will live, who will die, and the price of glory
  • Castle Keep (1969) (107 min.) : Near the end of World War II, Major Falconer leads his weary eight-man squadron to a perfectly preserved medieval castle in the Adrennes Forest to protect the fortress and its art from the advancing Germans. This is an extraordinary melding of war drama, satiric comedy and heroic action-adventure
  • Young Winston (1972) (149 min,) : Richard Attenborough's examination of the early life of Winston Churchill from boyhood to the battlefield up until his early days at Parliament; a fascinating look at the formative years of one of the greatest politicians and most influential world leaders of the 20th century
