Amazing how this little-noticed TV film continues to resonate 30 years later
I agree completely with the others here who can't forget this film. Made for TV in 1969, never released on video, probably last seen by some 30 years ago, and almost never mentioned in any movie guide -- you'd think it would long ago have been consigned to the rubbish heap of TV history. But it won't be, because it was simply such a powerful story, excellently portrayed and well acted. Indeed, with the current boom in everything pertaining to WWII, the timing is perfect for whoever owns the film to release it on video, or to a cable network who will give it some air time. I remember very clearly seeing it when it came on in 1969...and I'm pretty sure I saw it again a year or so later. This sounds strange, I know, but I'll bet a month doesn't go by that I don't think about the movie for at least a moment -- it was that good. And if you ever read about the B-24 "Lady Be Good" or see the LBG exhibit at the US Air Force Museum, you'll definitely think about this film a long time.

To the studio who owns this film: BRING THIS ONE OUT OF THE VAULT!!
