Excitement, adventure, derring-do and courage in the war-torn skies over northern Europe are "the right stuff" for this pulse-pounding World War II air drama. Two Academy Award winners headline the solid cast: Cliff Robertson (Best Actor, Charly, 1968) and George Chakiris (Best Supporting Actor, West Side Story, 1961). Robertson, an avid flyer in real life, plays a combat-weary pilot whose R.A.F. squadron is ordered on an apparent suicide mission to destroy a Nazi rocket fuel plant tucked deep into a Norwegain fjord. Chakiris portays a resistance fighter whose fate numbers among the many ironies in the expertly written screenplay.

To make the film, which is based on a true story, a squadron of legendary Mosquito fighter bombers was resurrected from near extinction. Dazzling flying sequences, bone-shaking sound and superb special effects help make this one of the most realistic combat films ever to reach the screen.

Extras:

  • In Good Company Remembering 633 Squadron (Kim Newman)
  • Flying High The Mirisch Strategy (Paul Kerr)
  • Mission Impossible Analysing 633 Squadron (Russ Hunter)
