    Synopsis


    Memphis Belle
    Unabashedly sentimental, this war film was produced by David Putnam in partnership with Catherine Wyler, whose father William Wyler directed an acclaimed documentary about the real-life events depicted in the film. The ensemble cast is composed of ten young actors portraying the crew of the World War II B-17 bomber "Memphis Belle," anticipating their 25th and last mission before they will be able to go home. Having won fame with their exemplary war record and amazing lack of casualties, they expect their final assignment to be a cakewalk, but instead they are ordered to bomb Bremen, a heavily defended German city that will mean almost certain loss of life. Led by their experienced captain, Dennis Dearborn (Matthew Modine), the crew shoulders its responsibility despite mounting fears, while their commanding officer (David Strathairn) and a public relations specialist (John Lithgow) wait anxiously for their return. Aboard the bomber, there's friction between Dearborn and his disgruntled co-pilot Luke Sinclair (Tate Donovan), and between medical officer Val Kozlowski (Billy Zane) and the rest of the crew when it's learned that Val lied about his qualifications. Despite impressive technical credits and a popular Generation-X cast, Memphis Belle (1990) was a box-office disappointment, its enthusiastic patriotism considered a throwback to a bygone era of filmmaking. ~ Karl Williams, Rovi

      These guys literally had the right stuff. They weren't flying 30000 feet dropping bombs and then going back to base for martinis at the officers lounge. These design planes literally defines shooting fish in a barrel. They were slow (compared to today), lumbering, and there was a lot of glass windows where the men were vulnerable to being killed. A great story of the bravery of the generation of men who actually did save the world.

      This is one of my favorite movies growing up. I've always loved World War II films and B-17s. I had to get it since my original VHS looked very grainy on the HDTV. Price was great I got practical for free after my $5 rewards and free shipping. My son loved it too, along with "Red Tails."

      I am a fan of WW2 movies. This one is no exception. I have watched this movie several times and always enjoy it. I like the air scenes and the story lines between the main characters. Took a while for the blu ray to come out but I think it was worth the wait!

      Have used this film in my classroom and shared with others teachers on the staff to show how the B-17s helpped to win the war in Europe. The only other film I can think of the tells the story of the B-17 and her crews is "12 o'clock High".

      About the crew of a B17 to finish its 25 missions

      Excellent movie with a lot of action; considering that CGA was coming of age, back in the 90’s I had purchased this on Laser Disk, for the people who have a Home Theater, it has great bass.
