Biopic of RAF Group Captain Douglas Bader who, after having lost both legs, flew a British fighter plane during WW2.
Biggest grossing British film of 1956 and the most successful film in the UK since Gone with the Wind (1939).
I'm sorry, the book says I must wait three months before I can initiate the procedure for hastening new issue.
Bader: Fine! We'll send Goring a telegram, and ask him not to come over for *three months*!
The scenes set in the days leading up to the onset of the Second World War feature late model Mark XVI Spitfires with 'teardrop' canopies, four-bladed propellers and cannon in the wings. In addition, the serial number on one aircraft (VT151) was an unused number from a block allocated to Gloster for a batch of Meteor F Mk 4's. (The serial can't be V7151 either, as this was an unused number from a block allocated to Gloster for a batch of Hawker Hurricanes - Gloster being part of the Hawker group).
Originally released in Great Britain at 135 minutes; cut by 12 minutes before the American premiere.
