What ho! Bouncing bombs away boys. Much parodied but still hugely enjoyable tribute to Barnes Wallace and Wing Commander Guy Gibson, the two men who may have helped turn WW2 around by destroying important Ruhr dams. A mix of gross sentimentality and the British stiff upper lip. A film very much of its time.
