Quotes

Moyra Jacobsson: You're an odd mix, Roger. Terribly, absolutely English, yet possessing that maddening quality of American independence. I suppose most people don't know what in the world to do with you.

I was alive and well during this period
20 July 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The movie depicts reasonably accurate the event(s) leading to this achievement. Considering the passage of 50 plus years, the producers have accomplished a creditable job in their production. It should be emphasized that the part played by Christopher Plummer is pure fiction, but for entertainment purposes, understandable. Present generations should not be too critical. The event was of great significance at the time. I am happy that it has been recorded for present generations information, and to honor the participants. I was particularly impressed by the imaginative use of the location facilities in Toronto in depicting the Oxford and Princetown locale(s) The cast selection was also impressive.
