After 24 successful bombing runs, the battle-hardened crew of the B-17 Flying Fortress Memphis Belle has just one more mission to fly before they can return home. That real-life 25th mission first chronicled in director William Wylers 1944 World War II documentary about a critical daylight raid into the heart of Germany is spectacularly re-created in this nail-biting 1990 airborne adventure. Producers David Puttnam (Chariots of Fire, The Killing Fields) and Catherine Wyler (Williams daughter) have teamed an all-star cast (Matthew Modine; Eric Stoltz; Sean Astin; Harry Connick, Jr.; and John Lithgow) with director Michael Caton-Jones (Rob Roy, The Jackal) to celebrate the extraordinary heroism of ordinary joes at war.
