The First of the Few
Not yet rated
Time Out saysDetailed and assured chronicle of RJ Mitchell's trials and triumphs in designing and building the Spitfire, the fighter plane whose aerial superiority won the Battle of Britain. Director/star Howard - who died on an RAF mission in 1943 - brings appropriate dedication to his final screen role, while Niven is suitably chummy as his test-pilot pal. Stirring score by William Walton.
