Welcome to Reel Britannia-a very British podcast about very British movies ...with just a hint of professionalism.
In the latest episode, Scott is joined by Tony to discuss the movie that recalls one of the most incredible incidents that occurred in World War Two. The story of Operation Mincemeat and The Man Who Never Was from 1956.
As the British military prepares to invade Sicily during World War II, intelligence agent Ewen Montagu (Clifton Webb) hatches a cunning plan to fool Germany into believing the Allies' true target is Greece. Concocting a fictitious British officer named Maj. William Martin, Montagu gathers false top-secret documents and personal letters to plant upon a corpse that will wash ashore in Spain. But the investigations of a German undercover agent (Stephen Boyd) could potentially expose the fraud.
