Hurricane, movie

Recommended Posts

A new war movie to love/hate - about the 303 Polish Fighter Squadron.  No doubt Sgt. Frantisek gets a mention a two.

Computer generated just does not cut it. No matter what the story line is. Real people with all of their flaws please.

Yet another war movie, to steer clear of. Why oh Why, can't they just make a decent movie that tells a true story, with as little CGI as possible.

That's the point of the original Battle of Britian film, what's CGI? never heard of it. Though some classic gaffs like the doorbell. There is garden on my work route with a 1:1  replica Spitfire in it, I'm told the house belongs to one of the stars of Bof B.

Just read about the BoB film in the current edition of "Britain at War".  The flight of Hurricanes in the film was composed of the only three flying planes they could scrape together, augmented by a bunch of the Buchon "Me 109s!  Must have another look at the film and check!  Plus these days, the models and mock ups they used do look pretty feeble.....but do not spoil an excellent film of course.  I will reserve judgement on "Hurricane" until I see it.......it does not have to be very good to eclipse "Dunkirk".......IMHO!  [Lets not start THAT one again!].

The clip posted by TonyB shows it. First 3 aircraft are the real Hurricanes, the three in the background are Buchons. Here's one of them. http://warbirds.wikia.com/wiki/File:Hurrischmitt6.jpg

Didn’t some of the Hurricanes (if not all 3 end up with BBMF?)

 

more blank ammunition was used in the making of the BOB film than live ammo in the actual battle.
