Welcome to Reel Britannia-a very British podcast about very British movies ...with just a hint of professionalism.

Episode 065 – Dunkirk (1958)


Scott, Steven and Tony have managed to get together once again for a chat about a great British war film - Dunkirk from 1958 directed by Leslie Norman and starring John Mills, Richard Attenborough and Bernard Lee. Better than the Christopher Nolan movie…? Take a listen and see what we think.

A British Corporal in France finds himself responsible for the lives of his men when their officer is killed. He has to get them back to Britain somehow. Meanwhile, British civilians are being dragged into the war with Operation Dynamo, the scheme to get the French and British forces back from the Dunkirk beaches. Some come forward to help, others were less willing.

“It may be a phoney war to you, but it's not to all the blokes at sea. Never has been.”
