The Dambusters is one of my favourite WWII films, along with Sink the Bismark. Some time ago I read that Peter Jackson wanted to remake it and I wondered at the time, if he did, would he ever make his money back? Older farts like me, who grew up on WWII films would certainly go but I don't know if it would hold any interest for many people 40 or younger.

We'll I've enjoyed some of the older WWII films

The Dambusters
Sink The Bismark
Battle of Britain
Tora! Tora! Tora!
Patton
Battle of the Bulge
Battle of the River Plate
The Longest Day.

To name a few.

And yes I'm under 40, but only by a few years.
No The Compass Rose/The Cruel Sea?.

there was a documentary series on the Dambusters raid made a few years back - anyone else see it?

Finally wasn't till much later after reading it that I found out that even with the talking with 617 survivors that Paul Brickhill's book wasn't that accurate because of there was still a lot of secrecy surrounding it.
