Posts from ejgreen77 in thread „What Are Your Favourite Non-Duke War Movies?“

    My favorite Vietnam movie has always been Burt Lancaster's Go Tell the Spartans. It portrays a realistic view of the war, without all the anti-American histrionics of Oliver Stone's movie. Great acting by Burt, Marc Singer, Evan Kim, and a young Jonathan Goldsmith, years before he became The Most Interesting Man in the World.

    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'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."
