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

    Three more of my favorite non-Duke war movies are "Wake Island", "Sailor of the King" (called "Singlehanded" in the UK) and "Run Silent, Run Deep".

    If you're going to do Wake Island, then why not do Guadalcanal Diary, Air Force, Destination Tokyo.

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

    I saw these today at Sams Club, had never seen them before. It was called 20th Centry Fox Classics and there were two of them with four war movies in each one.

    The first one had,

    The Desert Rats
    Von Ryans Express
    Twelve O'Clock High
    The Young Lions

    The second had,

    The Blue Max
    The Desert Fox
    The Immortal Sergeant
    Sink the Bismarck

    Not a bad collection. I guess it's part of Fox's classic collections of which there are about 18 volumes of various movies. I didn't notice the price, but on Amazon they're about $20.

    Hi Jim, you cant go wrong with these. The Desert Rats and the Desert Fox are related to each other and James Mason plays Fieldmarshal Erwin Rommel in both. In fact, I just rewatched both of them yesterday and this morning ;-)) The rest are all good movies and the "worst" of those eight IMO-are The Immortal Sergeant and The Young Lions-and those are still good movies.

    Might I suggest a few to you:

    Hannibal Brooks, The Command, Darby's Rangers and The Tanks Are Coming.

    In: The Desert Fox, they use quite a bit of real footage which blends in nicely--check out the footage of the Opening British Artillery Barrage on El Alamein.

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

    Yeah, Karl, I've seen all of those in both sets and have probably seen The Desert Fox, and Desert Rats a few times. I've seen The Immortal Sergeant a few times also and is one movie I've always liked. Out of all of them, I think The Blue Max is the only one I've seen once. Shoot, I remember going to see The Young Lions & Von Ryans Express at the theaters when they first came out. Seen Twelve O'clock High many times on tv and my favorite part is when Gregory Pecks character, Gen. Savage, first goes to take over the bomber group and raking everybody over the coals because they were too nonchalant about the way things are run.
