HARMANS CROSS MOVIE NIGHTS
Our next film on Tuesday 11 December is “Spitfire”. Having recently run Darkest Hour we now look at our finest hour with a documentary about this iconic aircraft. This film was released to mark the RAF’s centenary and was chosen to coincide with the one hundredth film that Movie Night has screened. Narrated by Charles Dance, this is a film that will thrill. It captures the pleasure of R. J. Mitchell’s design, whom it seems may well have copied the famous elliptical wing from an earlier German Luftwaffe idea. Newsreels and gripping gun-camera footage are intercut with new film of some of the few remaining Spitfires in the air. However, it’s the pin-sharp memories of the people who flew them that give this film its broader purpose and appeal. We hear from Mary Ellis, then 99, and sadly died earlier this year, who tells us that, The plane was a lady in the air but a bitch on the ground. Also from flying ace Tom Neil, also departed, who says, I hated taking off at dawn. Why in God’s name couldn’t we do it after lunch?
Tickets £5 on the door, which will open, along with the bar, at 7pm.
