this is from a WW2 propaganda film starring Leslie Banks (no googling it) the village looks the same now as it did then :-)DSC06980.JPG - Bild entfernt (keine Rechte)

seems it was too hard for you it was a film called "Went the day well" if you haven't seen it I would heartily recommend it, it should be on 16mm, very repeatable viewing.

The village is exactly the same now as it was in the 40's when the film was made and overlooking it is the windmill from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

It was over my head that one Del. It's a film I have never seen I have to admit.

Well worth seeking out

A brave film to make in 1942 and for the time quite vicious.


I still love the smell of film in the morning

Nice one David, I would recommend anyone to watch this one, it's a great film that I would think might have been a bit controversial at the time, we love it.
