About this Episode

If you are a Patron of the show, you will notice that this is our second film starring George Peppard and THIRD film scored by Jerry Goldsmith in a row! Is this just a coincidence, or some weird thing Liam has been doing with our film selection? Who knows!

This week's episode brings us a very famous WWI aviation film from director John Guillermin. It has been simultaneously lauded as one of the most accurate depictions of combat flight in that era, and maligned by the author of the book the film is based on for its inaccuracy.

Does it hold up? It's up to us to discuss, and for you listeners to decide. This was a highly requested episode, so we are looking forward to hearing what you all think!

Next Episode: Gettysburg (1993)
