The Memphis Belle: A Story of a Flying Fortress

Movie Guide Unabashedly sentimental, this war film was produced by David Putnam in partnership with Catherine Wyler, whose father William Wyler directed an acclaimed documentary about the real-life events depicted in the film. The ensemble cast is composed of ten young actors portraying the crew of the World War II B-17 bomber Memphis Belle, anticipating their 25th and last mission before they will be able to go home.

    These are not actors, as stated above; they are the crews and ground crews of the 8th airforce.  Obviously the king and queen did not participate in a Hollywood movie.  An oldie but a goodie considering the times.
