FILM DESCRIPTION:
Unabashedly sentimental, this war film was produced by David Putnam in partnership with Catherine Wyler, whose father William Wyler directed an acclaimed documentary about the real-life events depicted in the film. The ensemble cast is composed of ten young actors portraying the crew of the World War II B-17 bomber “Memphis Belle,” anticipating their 25th and last mission before they will be able to go home. Having won fame with their exemplary war record and amazing lack of casualties, they expect their final assignment to be a cakewalk, but instead they are ordered to bomb Bremen, a heavily defended German city that will mean almost certain loss of life. Led by their experienced captain, Dennis Dearborn (Matthew Modine), the crew shoulders its responsibility despite mounting fears, while their commanding officer (David Strathairn) and a public relations specialist (John Lithgow) wait anxiously for their return. Aboard the bomber, there’s friction between Dearborn and his disgruntled co-pilot Luke Sinclair (Tate Donovan), and between medical officer Val Kozlowski (Billy Zane) and the rest of the crew when it’s learned that Val lied about his qualifications. Despite impressive technical credits and a popular Generation-X cast, Memphis Belle (1990) was a box-office disappointment, its enthusiastic patriotism considered a throwback to a bygone era of filmmaking.

  1. Much more realistic look at the B-17 crews of World War ll especially their ages, which, for once, are depicted accurately. The TV series, "Twelve O" clock High, while having some good episodes showed actors in their forties and fifties piloted the B-17's. Hollywood nonsense. This movie got it more accurately correct, except the last mission of the Memphis Belle was a so-called "milk run" to make it easier for the plane to bring her crew home safely at the end of all 25 missions, not a extremely difficult mission like this one.

  2. My grandfather was a B-17 pilot. He had a scene like this. He was taking for a mission to Dresden and during their test fire, another bomber shot his engine. He turned around to re-land but another engine suddenly cut out. So now he's lost 2 engines. Im not sure if it was 1 to 1 or 2 on the same side. His landing gear got damaged too so he had to belly land. He landed in a cornfield in England and the farmer came out absolutely pissed.

  3. Never before in the field of human conflict, was so much owed by so many , to so few, god bless all those who perished in all wars, our freedom was given at such a price , so lets each and every one of us never forget,

  4. Saw this aircraft at Scott Field Open House not long after this movie was produced. I looked dirty, worn out, and well used like in the movie. Not like many, cleaned up and shining pretty like a car show for aircraft would be displayed.

  5. My FIL did his 35 missions in the Mighty 8th, but later in the War and in B-24's. He saw this picture and thought it was about 50% BS. The crew N EVER questioned the pilots. When told to do something, they did. There was no commenting or discussion. But..Much of the flak , formation flying and encountering fighters…pretty damned realistic. Too bad Hollywood had to embellish, they missed a chance to really honor these brave Airmen.

  6. And there were real heroes, my late uncle Capt Jerome, who flew b17s out of England, 390th heavy bomb group, never bragged or even wanted to talk about what they did and saw, just did their duty to protect country and our allies.

  7. This was the inflight movie on United one time I flew from LA to Sydney. It was absolutely terrifying to watch, sitting in a plane, watching others planes plummet from the sky.

  8. Friend asked me what I wanted for Christmas. Asked for this film. Watched it all the way through last night. It's far from perfect, but I love this movie from start to finish.

  9. One of the best movies ever made. I love the dog fighting scene when eugene genie the weinie thinks he gets his good luck charm thrown out by jack this is a cool movie i still have the orginal on vhs
