This is a great movie about the RAF's Bomber Command in WW II. It has a superb cast and the photography is exquisite. Although there are no aerial action scenes, wartime tension dominates every frame. Especially well handled are the rivalry and competition between the British Airmen and their American counterparts from the 8th Air Force. This is a must view for those who are interested in the Allied Air Crews who fought in the Air War over Fortress Europa during the bleak years from 1939-1944. The secret? "Keep Calm and Carry On."

The Way to the Stars / Johnny In The Clouds (1945)


Life on a British bomber base, and the surrounding towns, from the opening days of the Battle of Britain, to the arrival of the Americans, who join in the bomber offensive. The film centres around Pilot Officer Peter Penrose, fresh out of a training unit, who joins the squadron, and quickly discovers about life during war time. He falls for Iris, a young girl who lives at the local hotel, but he becomes disillusioned about marriage, when the squadron commander dies in a raid, and leaves his wife, the hotel manageress, with a young son to bring up. As the war progresses, Penross comes to terms that he has survived, while others have been killed.
