Memphis Belle (movie)

Title: Memphis Belle

Year, production: 1990, USA/UK

Directed by: Michael Caton-Jones

Cast: Mattew Modine, Tate Donovan, Eric Stoltz, D.B. Sweeney, Reed Diamond, ...

Runtime: 107 min.

It is a true story about last bombing done by B-17 bomber "Memphis Belle" during Second World War. The bombing was done in German city Bremen in 1943.

It must be very hard to do this kind of flight, bomb the city and come back alive, almost impossible. Very hard German resistance from ground and air. I don't know how much this film is real but looks very good.

If you like the movie and you are also a book reader you should read a book "Bomber". See details: http://allwars.blogspot.com/2006/10/bomber-book.html
