Description

Ice Cold In Alex
A tense, engrossing adventure set in the 1942 Libyan war zone in the hot Western Desert. A British ambulance officer (John Mills) escapes the siege in Tobruk and tries desperately to get his passengers to safety in Alexandria, where he dreams of an ice cold glass of beer. His passengers include a stranded hospital nurse (Sylvia Syms), a sergeant major and a stray South African officer, trying to return to his unit.

The Colditz Story
One German maximum security prison was more infamous than any other during World War II - Colditz Castle in Saxony. Although Colditz was considered "escape proof", its boundaries were challenged many times by Allied prisoners of war, with fatal results. On 15 October 1942, a group of British service men made the most historic and perhaps courageous attempt of all.

The Cruel Sea
Jack Hawkins, Donald Sinden, Denholm Elliott and Virginia McKenna star in a powerful and moving documentary-style account of life on board a British warship during World War II. Directed by Charles Frend, it is the courageous story of the Battle of the Atlantic - a story of an ocean, a ship and a handful of men. The brave crew are the heroes. The heroine is the ship.

The Dambusters
Dr. Barnes Wallis (Michael Redgrave) was possessed with a seemingly crazy idea - the creation of the bouncing bomb, designed to destroy the Ruhr dams and paralyse the enemy's industrial nerve centre. He fought persistent scepticism and disbelief that such a feat was possible. Through the matchless skill, determination and courage of R.A.F. Wing Commander Guy Gibson (Richard Todd) and his squadron, the mission succeeded. Thrilling action and riveting suspense are combined in the true-life drama of this heroic exploit, heightened with actual newsreels of the legendary raid.
