Dunkirk (1958) Richard Attenborough, John Mills
A group of soldiers lead by Corporal "Tubby" Bins (John Mills), stranded in France, must make their way to the shores of Dunkirk in hopes of a rescue. Back in Britain, Charles Foreman (Bernard Lee), a newspaper reporter, desperately tries to raise awareness among the public of the horrible reality of the war. When the British navy calls for all civilian ships to aid in a rescue, Foreman takes out his own small boat and attempts to bring Tubby and his men home safely.
Starring: Richard Attenborough, John Mills,
Viewer Review: "This is what a WWII movie should be! Dunkirk is one of the best war movies I have ever seen. The makers of this fine film did a most excellent job in portraying as accurately as possible; the terrible events that made up Dunkirk. The story is told from the perspective of the high command, but also from the ordinary tommy and from the civilians who helped. John Mills is a corporal who leads his small squad out of certain capture from the Germans. Richard Attenborough is a small craft owner like Walter Pidgeon who is a timid and frightened man, but summons up enough courage to help his country out in its darkest hour. Bernard Lee is a reporter who goes along with Attenborough to cover the story. All three meet on the beach at Dunkirk and go to the fates that await them and their country. This film is the rarest of war films, no love theme and stoically brilliant."
