Chris' Film Club: The Dam Busters

This weeks Film Club theme features well-known or classic films following the theme of planes. Kicking it all off is the high flying British war film, The Dam Busters!

The 1955 film was based on the true story of British bombers trying to breach German dams, back in World War II. It focuses on the development of the 'bouncing bomb' and Operation Chastise, with the narrative following the heavy attacks of the Ruhr dams in Germany!

The film was produced by 'Around The World In 80 Days' director, Michael Anderson and features stars such as Michael Redgrave as Barnes Wallis and Richard Todd as Wing Commander Guy Gibson.
