    A Bridge too Far, The Odd Angry Shot, Kokoda, Dunkirk, Colditz, to name a few. Most would be classified as classics.

    Re: What Are Your Favourite, Non-Duke War Movies?

    Many great movies have been mentioned already.

    Some of my favourites are:
    Full Metal Jacket
    Platoon
    Das Boot (pretty good German Submarine Movie!)
    Men in War
    Paths of Glory
    9 rota aka The 9th Company (Russian War Movie about Afghanistan)
    Steiner - Cross of Iron
    The Big Red One (According to the extras of the DVD Director Fuller spoke with John Wayne about the role of the Sergeant but IMO Lee Marvin was perfect in his role!)
    Zulu (Never saw Zulu Dawn with Burt Lancaster)
    Downfall
    None but the Brave (Underrated War Movie with Frank Sinatra)
    Letters from Iwo Jima
    The Train
    .....
    "You're too good to give a chance to." John Wayne as Cole Thornton in El Dorado (1966)

    Technically, this isn't a movie but instead a TV miniseries. However, it's great viewing and the combat scenes are very realistic. Highly recommended.

    That was my first purchase of any set that was on the expensive side, Stumpy. I usually can't get myself to drop over 30 dollars on anything involving DVDs. But I HAD to have Band Of Brothers. It was very well made, and the characters mirrored their real life men pretty good. I also highly recommend this set.

    What was most surprising to me, Mark, was that the entire series was filmed in either the UK or continental Europe and most of the actors shown were Brits instead of Americans.

    As you said, the series was very well made and the (British) actors did a helluva job portraying American paratroopers (and members of the Wehrmacht).

    Jim and Mark,

    It was made mostly in the UK, by Mr. Spielberg,
    with some scenes in Switzerland.

    It was very well done as you say, using mainly Brits,

    # A large portion of the American soldiers portrayed throughout the series are played British actors.

    Here's the link to the IMDb trivia on it

    Band Of Brothers

    Some of the scenes were shot in the same locations as Spielbergs,
    Saving Private Ryan

    I really liked that British-born actor Damian Lewis, who played the commander of the American unit. He did a bang-up job. I'd like to see him in more roles.

    Re: What Are Your Favourite, Non-Duke War Movies?

    I was wondering if any of you folks from the UK remember this film? It was always one of my favorites. What surprised me was the performance turned in by Anthony Newley, which was surprisingly good.

    Jim, I do,
    and it's been a long time since I saw it last.
    Mostly filmed in the dark if I remember,
    but a really good, tense film.
    Anthony Newley of course also a singer,
    turned in a better than average perfomance
