Based on the book by Paul Bricknell, this 1954 World War II classic is about the ingenious and highly secretive development of a specially designed bomb that literally bounced over the water surface. This enabled the British to destroy a strategic dam inside Germany using this unique design and cause as much sabotage as possible on Germany's industry.
Starring Richard Todd and Michael Redgrave, this is a great actioner and is incredibly tense as the film reaches its climatic mission to deliver the bomb in the closing scenes. It was filmed in black and is being re-released.
Filmmaker Peter Jackson (THE LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy, KING KONG) is to start filming DAMBUSTERS in 2008 in a remake of this popular classic.
