| The Biter Bit
Initially called 'Siege', this elaborate Ealing propaganda feature from early in the war anticipates Disney's 'Victory Through Air Power' in it's emphasis on sabotaging German lines of supply once the Wehrmacht had lost control of the Channel after the Battle of Britain.

With a cast that ranges from Minister of Economic Warfare Hugh Dalton to Will Hay; most of the performances, friend and foe alike, are inclined to be rather broad, from Michael Redgrave as a cherubic Russian to a young Robert Morley as a particularly swivel-eyed Nazi.
