Ice Cold in Alex
Guns of Naverone
Battle of Britain
Apocalypse Now (Redux)
The Heroes of Telemark
The Cruel Sea

The Cruel Sea was accused of being a rip off "In Which We Serve", which is very unfair.

I know its daft, but I can't watch the scene where those two Delta take on the licals without bursting into tears. I was still in the army when they showed the news footage of them carrying their bodies out like lions killed in a hunt. I think that operation was the last time the Yanks trusted India armed forces with anything.

Also John Mills was drinking real beer and they did that scene 7 times!
John Mills could quaff though.

I once had a pint of Ice cold lager in a hotel bar in Africa towards the end of a long and sh*tty work trip. It would have landed me in a World of trouble if I'd been caught, which made it all the more satisfying.

We also got absolutely hammered in Dakar on the way back, but that's another story.
