Day 30 - Saddest Death Scene

No You Tube today, as there isn't one.  One of the sites described this film as understated and under-rated! 

The Way To The Stars  was filmed in the 40's and stars John Mills as an English RAF pilot ... with the first half of the film about the impact that war and a new RAF field is making on a small community ... then in the middle is the change over as the USAAF arrive, and the chnges they bring to the area, with he second half showing how the locals copee with both these variations and the on-going war and losses.

Near the end of the film the American pilat (played by Douglass Montgomery) is returning from a flight, with bombs still aboard ... he gets the crew to bail out, then tells the tower that he will be able to land ... and so turns in, away from the village, and the ineveditable happens.

It is poinant - and demonstrates the pointless loss of life during war - but also the supreme sacrifice that many gave.



Day 31 - Scene that made you stand up and cheer
