Goofs

The bomber crew that bailed out landed only a hundred yards or so from where their plane crashed. Consolidated's B-24 Liberator could get up to 278 miles per hour at an altitude of 25,000 feet. This means that after it, or any other bomber, was incapacitated, it would travel dozens of miles before it crashed. See more »

Beautiful

I don't understand the poor ratings for this. Sure if you're looking for something with all the action of Saving Private Ryan then you won't find that here but this is a beautiful film and it is the message you should take from it. Someone has rated this a 3, only watching 30 minutes of it and mocking it for being about making a violin. This is a true story and it warms my heart that in those desperate times this is something they did just to get through.
