[edit] Information

The Bombing Mission that made history ! World War II American bomber crews rarely made it home. Survival rate: one in five. These deadly odds so appalled Academy-Award winning moviemaker David Puttnam (CHARIOTS OF FIRE) that he co-produced MEMPHIS BELLE, the account of of a young crew's bravery on their final mission. As the cameras shoot the stars of Puttnam's 1990 movie (among them Matthew Modine and Eric Stoltz), the crew of yesteryear, the original glory boys, remember the real shooting 47 years ago when they flew over Nazi-occupied Europe. BELLE AND THE GLORY BOYS showcases the passion and precision of today's moviemakers- and the amazing bravery and resourcefulness of the heroes whose daring exploits they now recreate for new generations. Besides interviews with the actors of 1990 and the original World War II heroes they portray, it also features thrilling excerpts from William Wyler's 1944 documentary filmed on actual missions of the legendary B-17 Flying Fortress. A BBC TV Elstree Production In Association with Enigma Productions 1990
