This movie is simply inspirational. From the "stiff upper lip" bravery of the pilots, to the perseverance of the scientists to the loving support of wives - it shows wartime Britain at its best.
This movie shows the courage and inspiration behind the development of the "bouncing bomb", and the the necessary "out of the box" thinking needed by everyone concerned to complete the mission. George Lucas lists this as among his favourite movies, and it is consistently ranked in the top #50 British movies of all time.
The transfer to DVD is superb, sound and picture quality is execellent.
Politically correct revisionists should beware that the wing commanders black lab dog is called the "n" word.
I would not hesitate to buy it. And it is a movie all the family can watch as there is no graffic violence.
6 stars out of 5!
