    The Last Days of Patton One of the most heroic and inspirational leaders of World War Two, General George S. Patton (George C. Scott) is seriously injured in a car accident just a few weeks after the end of the war and is not expected to survive. This is the story of the last few months of the General's life and the Army Medical Corps efforts to save him. As he lies immobile in a hospital bed, surrounded by the pessimistic doctors and his worried wife, he waits for death and reminisces about his happy younger days. From Hell to Victory On August 24th 1939 in a small riverside cafe in France, six old friends vow to reunite on that day each year, however fate has a way of disrupting even the best laid plans. With the outbreak of war the friends find their lives running very different courses as their loyalties and nationalities begin to forge their future. An action-packed tale of war, friendships and family ties. Hitler's SS This star-studded and gripping drama portrays the rise and fall of the Third Reich through the lives of two brothers who find themselves on opposite sides of the Nazi party. Helmut (Bill Nighy) the brilliant but opportunistic student, and Karl (John Shea) an idealistic athlete both come of age at the dawn of Hitler’s 1930s Germany. Although bound under the Nazi banner and in love with the same woman (Lucy Gutteridge), both brothers have different experience and expectations in the conflict. Battle of Blood Island An amphibious attack by American troops on a South Pacific island meets with a heavy Japanese defence killing all but two survivors, leaving one unable to walk. Isolation, lack of food and a primal fear all begin to take their toll as the months pass and when the realisation of their situation begins to sink in, the men have a new enemy to fight - each other. Dive Bomber The ever-dashing Errol Flynn stars alongside Fred MacMurray in this action packed drama set at the U.S. Naval Air Station in San Diego during the uncertain year of 1941. With war already raging in Europe, U.S. Forces began to prepare for their seemingly inevitable involvement in the conflict. As part of the preparation Naval flight surgeon Lt. Doug Lee (Errol Flynn) is determined to eradicate pilot blackout and altitude sickness, thus handing U.S. pilots an immeasurable advantage. With the initially reluctant help of Lt. Com Joe Blake (Fred MacMurray) the two men risk their own lives in order to find a cure. Aerial Gunner Lieutenant Davis and his stricken aircraft return to base following a successful bombing mission over Japan, only to discover members of his crew are either missing or dead. Recounting in flashbacks the events leading up to the fatal mission, Davis tells of his rivalry with his aerial gunner Sgt Foxy Pattis. A dramatic story of envy, revenge and comradeship set against the background of World War Two.

    Thematically ambitious and emotionally complex, Clint Eastwood's Flags of Our Fathers is an intimate epic with much to say about war and the nature of heroism in America. Based on the non-fiction bestseller by James Bradley (with Ron Powers), and adapted by Million Dollar Baby screenwriter Paul Haggis (Jarhead screenwriter William Broyles Jr. wrote an earlier draft that was abandoned when Eastwood signed on to direct), this isn't so much a conventional war movie as it is a thought-provoking meditation on our collective need for heroes, even at the expense of those we deem heroic. In telling the story of the six men (five Marines, one Navy medic) who raised the American flag of victory on the battle-ravaged Japanese island of Iwo Jima on February 23rd, 1945, Eastwood takes us deep into the horror of war (in painstakingly authentic Iwo Jima battle scenes) while emphasizing how three of the surviving flag-raisers (played by Adam Beach, Ryan Phillippe, and Jesse Bradford) became reluctant celebrities - and resentful pawns in a wartime publicity campaign - after their flag-raising was immortalized by Associated Press photographer Joe Rosenthal in the most famous photograph in military history. As the surviving flag-raisers reluctantly play their public roles as "the heroes of Iwo Jima" during an exhausting (but clearly necessary) wartime bond rally tour, Flags of Our Fathers evolves into a pointed study of battlefield valor and misplaced idolatry, incorporating subtle comment on the bogus nature of celebrity, the trauma of battle, and the true meaning of heroism in wartime. Wisely avoiding any direct parallels to contemporary history, Eastwood allows us to draw our own conclusions about the Iwo Jima flag-raisers and how their postwar histories (both noble and tragic) simultaneously illustrate the hazards of exploited celebrity and society's genuine need for admirable role models during times of national crisis. Flags of Our Fathers defies the expectations of those seeking a more straightforward war-action drama, but it's richly satisfying, impeccably crafted film that manages to be genuinely patriotic (in celebrating the camaraderie of soldiers in battle) while dramatising the ultimate futility of war. Eastwood's follow-up film, Letters from Iwo Jima, examines the Iwo Jima conflict from the Japanese perspective. Critically hailed as an instant classic, Clint Eastwood's Letters from Iwo Jima is a masterwork of uncommon humanity and a harrowing, unforgettable indictment of the horrors of war. In an unprecedented demonstration of worldly citizenship, Eastwood (from a spare, tightly focused screenplay by first-time screenwriter Iris Yamashita) has crafted a truly Japanese film, with Japanese dialogue (with subtitles) and filmed in a contemplative Japanese style, serving as both complement and counterpoint to Eastwood's previously released companion film Flags of Our Fathers. Where the earlier film employed a complex non-linear structure and epic-scale production values to dramatise one of the bloodiest battles of World War II and its traumatic impact on American soldiers, Letters reveals the battle of Iwo Jima from the tunnel- and cave-dwelling perspective of the Japanese, hopelessly outnumbered, deprived of reinforcements, and doomed to die in inevitable defeat. While maintaining many of the traditions of the conventional war drama, Eastwood extends his sympathetic touch to humanise "the enemy," revealing the internal and external conflicts of soldiers and officers alike, forced by circumstance to sacrifice themselves or defend their honour against insurmountable odds. From the weary reluctance of a young recruit named Saigo (Kazunari Ninomiya) to the dignified yet desperately anguished strategy of Japanese commander Tadamichi Kuribayashi (played by Oscar-nominated The Last Samurai costar Ken Watanabe), whose letters home inspired the film's title and present-day framing device, Letters from Iwo Jima (which conveys the bleakness of battle through a near-total absence of colour) steadfastly avoids the glorification of war while paying honorable tribute to ill-fated men who can only dream of the comforts of home. --Jeff Shannon

  • Pathe Archive -A Year To Remember - The 1930s [DVD] Pathe Archive -A Year To Remember - The 1930s | DVD | (30/05/2011) from £20.95  |  Saving you £4.00 (16.00%)  |  RRP £24.99

    Using rare news footage and interviews from the incredible British Pathe archive this extraordinary series provides a unique look at what made the news of yesteryear. With a comprehensive hour long programme on each year of the 1930s this 3 disc-set provides the definitive insight into the decade leading up to World War 2. In a world reeling from the Great Depression the decade was dominated by record levels of unemployment and economic hardship with newsreels doing their best to maintain morale. The growing fascination with technological progress was regularly featured showcasing the rapid developments in flight and speed in particular. The exploits of Amelia Earhart and Malcolm Campbell thrilled people up and down the country. The world was shrinking too with the first telephone call between Britain and Australia and the launch of the Zeppelin airships. Following the death of King George V Britain was soon to be rocked by the abdication of his successor King Edward VIII over his intention to marry the twice divorced socialite Wallis Simpson. His brother George VI the so-called 'reluctant king' proved an immensely popular replacement. The decade was an era of great and lasting political change. In Britain Ramsey MacDonald led the first National Government whilst in the U.S.A. Franklin D. Roosevelt assumed the presidency and urged his fellow Americans that the only thing to fear was fear itself and showed the way out of the Great Depression. However it was the rise of Adolf Hitler and his fascist regime in German politics that made the world bristle. Despite the diplomatic efforts of Neville Chamberlain with his promise of peace in our time war was officially declared in 1939. Other more light hearted events of the decade are included such as the first egg-timer alarms Fred Perry winning Wimbledon the first indoor ski slope and the introduction of an albeit rudimentary driving test! Relive all these events and many many more with A Year To Remember: The 1930s.

    Tony Palmer's epic film was made in 1982/3 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Wagner's death. Filmed in 200 locations throughout Europe, many where the actual historical events took place, with a team from 19 different countries, the entire production was completed in less than a year. Sadly Wagner was to be Richard Burton's last major role, but the stellar cast - including Laurence Oliver, John Gielgud, Ralph Richardson, Vanessa Redgrave, Lszl Gllfi, Gemma Craven, Ekkehardt Schall, Richard Pasco, Marthe Keller, Gabriel Byrne, Franco Nero, Ronald Pickup, Corin Redgrave, Cyril Cusack, Prunella Scales, Andrew Cruickshank, Joan Greenwood, Liza Goddard, Bill Fraser, Arthur Lowe, Joan Plowright, with composer Sir William Walton in a cameo role - assembled partly because of him.Only now is the film being released on DVD as its director Tony Palmer wishes it to be viewed. Previously it's been seen in badly edited versions and been made available on DVD (reproduced from poor-quality VHSs) with sub-standard pictures and sound. Finally, here is the restored presentation as it was originally edited by Tony Palmer in its complete 7 hours 46 minutes duration, issued in wide-screen, re-mastered in Hi-Definition. The music, performed by the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Sir Georg Solti with singers including Dame Gwyneth Jones and Peter Hofmann, has never sounded better, and the astonishing images of cameramen Vittorio Storaro and Nic Knowland have never looked better.The script by Charles Wood remains a miracle of historical compression and accuracy, given that Wagner himself was an appalling fantasist and the truth often hard to ascertain. And Richard Burton, who towers above the production, reminds us what a great actor he was. This is a fitting tribute to his - and to Wagner's - genius.
