Guy Hamilton United Kingdom, 1969

melly's rating of the film Battle of Britain

Despite big stars playing dashing pilots, the main characters of this film are not human. (None of the characters have a proper story arc, let alone proper 40s hairdo.) The stars are the planes themselves, and their magnificent, riveting aerial battles. Even with their inaccuracies, they are virtually unrivaled in film. BoB also includes possibly the highest number of bailing-out scenes ever captured on film.
