Miss Marple meets The Eagle Has Landed in one of the greatest British war movies.

When Churchill said we’d fight the Nazis on beaches, landing grounds, fields, streets and hills, he left out the church-yard, manorhouse, pub and village-green. But in this stirring, startlingly violent (for its time) masterwork of WW2 propaganda, that’s exactly where the plucky locals of Bramley End engage the enemy. Inspired by a Graham Greene short story, this is a true hidden gem of our national cinema.

A restoration by the BFI National Archive in association with Studio Canal and Optimum Releasing.
