"The Silver Screen collections are all very good."
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Battle of River Plate and Above us the Waves were very good, but the 49 Parallel was not very good in fact it was terrible. The reason we bought the silver screen was for the Battle of the River plate, and Above us the waves
