Drama set during World War I. When the war machines began rolling in the summer of 1914, the devastation that it waged upon German, British, and French troops was palpable. But as the winter winds began to blow and the soldiers sat huddled in their trenches awaiting the generous Christmas care packages sent by the families, the sounds of warfare took a momentary backseat to the yearning for brotherhood among all of mankind. It is here that the fate of a French lieutenant, a Scottish priest, a German tenor, and a Danish soprano's lives were about to be changed forever.

R110 Discovery Miles 1 100 In stock

Hell's Angels is one of the inspirations behind Martin Scorsese's highly acclaimed Howard Hughes biopic, The Aviator.

Billionaire Howard Hughes produced and directed Hell's Angels, the most expensive film ever made during its time. Hughes spared no expense in capturing an exciting dogfight between RAF and German fighter planes, using 133 pilots in all. Hell's Angels is perhaps most notable for introducing Jean Harlow to the screen in her first major film role.

Set during World War I, Hell's Angels is the story of three Oxford buddies: two brothers (Ben Lyon and James Hall) and the German (John Darrow). When all three are conscripted to fight on opposing sides of the war, each is torn between obedience to his country and that of his country and that of his conscience. Jean Harlow is the woman who comes between the three men in this lavish period adventure.

Classic British war film based on the novel by Pierre Boulle in which a group of POWs are forced to build a bridge in Burma for the Japanese. Colonel Nicholson (Alec Guinness) is the appointed leader of the men interned in the camp. When the Japanese commander, Colonel Saito (Sessue Hayakawa), orders his captives to build a bridge across the river Kwai, Nicholson agrees on the basis that the project will keep his men occupied and give them an opportunity to prove, through the quality of their work, the superiority of British engineering. However, as the bridge progresses and the POWs strive to show their craftsmanship, Nicholson appears to lose sight of the fact that the ultimate object of the bridge is to help the Japanese win the war. The impending arrival of a British commando team, sent to destroy the bridge, looks set to provide a stern test of where the true loyalties of the increasingly obsessive Nicholson lie.
