You mentioned your list on a Classic War Movie thread,
is this the list you were referring to?
Here's one that hasn't been mentioned yet that I like is FULL METAL JACKET. That's when I first discovered R. Lee Ermey and have enjoyed some of his other movies. Anybody here ever watch mail call on The History Channel?
This is one of 3 requests, I've had to spotlight a movie.
This was made in 1951,about the end days of WW11,
I have not seen this movie, so hopefully my friend The Ringo Kid,
will add his very own movie review.
"I am not intoxicated - yet." McLintock!
I'm not sure if there's a thread for movie requests, but one of my favorite WWII movies is The Heroes of Telemark (1965) starring Kirk Douglas and Richard Harris. This movie is about the Norwegian resistance movement during the war, and how a small group of resistance fighters prevented the Nazis from developing the atomic bomb. It was shot on location in Norway and features breathtaking scenery (including a great, exciting chase on skis) and a memorable musical score. I wish this movie was available on DVD here in the US, it would certainly be at or near the top of my DVD "wish list."
If there is anymore War Movies that you think are worthy
of being included in the Classic War Movies,
please post them here
