Performance times

This film is not currently showing in cinemas.

Screening as part of Shropshires World War One Film FestivalTwo brothers attending Oxford enlist with the RAF when World War I breaks out. Roy and Monte Rutledge have very different personalities. Monte is a freewheeling womanizer, even with his brothers girlfriend Helen. He also proves to have a yellow streak when it comes to his Night Patrol duties. Roy is made of strong moral fibre and attempts to keep his brother in line. Both volunteer for an extremely risky two man bombing mission for different reasons. Monte wants to lose his cowardly reputation and Roy seeks to protect his brother. Their assignment to knock out a strategic German munitions facility is a booming success, but with a squadron of fighters bearing down on them afterwards, escape seems unlikely.Controversy during the Hells Angels production contributed to the films notoriety, including the accidental deaths of several pilots. Hells Angels was one of the highest-grossing films of the early sound era and was widely reported as being one of the most expensive films ever made.Dir: Howard Hughes, James Whale.Cast: Ben Lyon, James Hall, Jean HarlowUSA 1930Run Time: 131 minsFor further information on the festival follow this link:http://www.shropshireremembers.org.uk/shropshires-first-world-war-film-festival/
