WW1 French Engineer uniform.
Sweet work on the Engineer General!
Niiiicce! Train of thought, stream of conciousness: Have you ever seen, "the Train?" Ithink it was made in 1964...about the resistance movement in the railyards of France in WWII.
I certainly have it's an excellent film!
Paul Scofield was perfect as the nazi, and Burt Laccaster with his wrinkled, beat-up, hangdog expression...that shot-to-end-all-shots of the train derailing...the film is a masterpiece...
I loved the scenes in the railyard with the massive armoured train the most.
Ah, such a movie..... *sigh*
There were a lot of great WWII movies made in the late 1950s to mid 1960s....There was one I'd always liked, but upon reading the factual book the film was based upon,found very disrespectful: The Great Escape. Call me nitpicky if you will, but I became insensed over the movie slapping in American male leads when the whole damned thing was, in reality, a British operation. I should think the real men who inspired the story would have been irate over it also. Ah well, 'twas 50 years ago and nothing to be done over it...still, it miffs. Do you have other favorite war movies other than The Train?
