Directed by Michael Anderson
Starring Richard Todd, Michael Redgrave, Ursula Jeans, Basil Sydney, Patrick Barr, Ernest Clark, Derek Farr
To mark the 75th anniversary of the incredible WW2 raid it was based on, Michael Anderson’s The Dam Busters (1955) will come bouncing back to cinemas for a single day, May 17— in a new 4k restoration that will also make its way to Blu-Ray in June.
One of the out-and-out coolest war movies ever made, if The Dam Busters doesn’t make you hang the Union Jack on your front porch, nothing will. I love Richard Todd, and this might be his finest 124 minutes. Essential.
