Doing some work in a video store and saw it on display.
Thought it said made in 1942.

Oh Yes that is the movie.

"they cant beat it reg, they cant beat it!"

Isn't this the movie about the guy that designed the Spitfire? Supposedly. I remember this from long ago. As a child I found it wonderful. Now as to it being anywhere near historically accurate............dunno. Leslie Howard was a great actor though and as I remember he played the part quite well. It had some action scenes but as I said I was young so their authenticity I can't vouch for. At that time they could have been models and I would have loved it.

yes it was and yes it is if it is indeed the first of the few.... I enjoy these old black and white films and it is a good story following the life of mitchell up to producing the spit.............well i do enjoy them http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif and it is a good story
