Description by OLDIES.com:
A RAF bomber is shot down on a raid over occupied Holland. The crew is able to bail out, but they are stranded in hostile territory, surrounded by the German Army which has virtually enslaved the country. Fortunately, the fugitives are picked up by the Dutch underground, who risk their lives and overcome tremendous obstacles in an attempt to help the British escape to freedom.
Nominated for two Oscars (screenplay and special effects), this stirring World War II bomber saga is one of the best of its' kind, with credit going to the powerhouse writer/producer/director team of Michael Powell and Emeric Pressberger. Future Academy Award winning director David Lean contributes fine work as editor.
After being shot down over Nazi occupied Holland, an RAF bomber crew attempt to make their way back to England. A well made British production. Academy Award Nominations: Best Original Screenplay, Best Special Effects.
