Film information

Based on: A true story

Story: Duble bill featuring two classic war movies. 'Battle of Britain' (1969) looks at how England defended itself from the German aerial onslaught of the summer of 1940. Laurence Olivier plays Sir Hugh Dowding, the air chief marshal whose fleet outmanouevre the Luftwaffe, despite a numerical disadvantage; and those few to whom so many owed so much are portrayed by an all-star cast including Michael Caine, Kenneth More and Ralph Richardson. Despite its pro-British slant, the authenticity of the film's impressive flying sequences was guaranteed by the technical advice of Adolf Galland, one of the Nazi's most celebrated World War 2 pilots. In 'The Train' (1964), German Colonel von Waldheim (Paul Scofield) orders the railway transfer of priceless works of art from the Jeu de Paume museum in Paris to the Fatherland. The French Resistance are determined to stop the cargo ever reaching Germany, and enrol railway inspector Labiche (Burt Lancaster) to help them in their cause.
