Angels One Five

A$9.95
The summer of1940. A squadron of RAF Hurricanes race towards German aircraft inbound over the Channel. A voice crackles in the pilots' headphones: "Hello Pimpernel Leader. Bandits ahead of you. Angels One Five..." Highly praised for its realism, Angels One Five is one of the very best films ever to be made about the Battle of Britain. It follows a squadron of RAF Hurricane pilots in combat during the campaign, taking on a seemingly unstoppable tide of Luftwaffe fighters and bombers intent on smashing Britain's defences as a prelude to invasion. The odds are against them. Few of them will survive. The young pilots know they are being asked to achieve the impossible. To fly and fight in such circumstances means calling upon incredible reserves of bravery and determination. The fate of the nation will be decided by their courage, skill and daring... The film that propelled Jack Hawkins and John Gregson to stardom, Angels One Five was directed by George More O'Ferrall, who had himself been stationed at RAF Fighter Command Headquarters during the Battle of Britain. This allowed him to bring to the film a unique degree of realism and honesty. This was what the Battle of Britain was really like for those who flew and fought in it...and there is no finer tribute to The Few.
