| Riveting and a must see
Just finished watching"Five came back", a truly remarkable mini series about five of the top Hollywood directors who put their careers on hold, and quite possibly ending them to join the military and record World War Two as it happened. Cannot recommend this enough and really is a must see. The stories are riveting, the footage they filmed is amazing, captured on the front line or while flying combat missions in bombers deep into Germany. These film makers have made some of my all time favourite movies, from Frank Capra's It's a wonderful life, John Ford's the Searchers, William Wylers Ben Hur, John Hustons The man who would be King, George Stevens Gunga Din and Shane. All fantastic films but they don't compare to the footage they filmed during their service in WW2. "Five came back" is a breathtaking piece of film making showing the deep and lasting impact the war had on these film makers and also on those they filmed.
