The First Of The Few DVD


This classic 1942 war movie tells the true story of how two of the most remarkable men in aviation history - Spitfire designer R.J. Mitchell and his test pilot Jeffrey Quill - developed the aeroplane whose technological superiority helped Britain to win the vital battle of the skies. It features two of Britain's best-loved stars: Leslie Howard (who also directs and who tragically went missing in action shortly after the film was made) as Mitchell and David Niven as Quill. Scripted by two other great names from British cinema Miles Malleson and Anatole de Grunwald... The First Of The Few also features a stirring score by William Walton. [show more]
