Excitement, adventure, derring-do and courage in the war-torn skies over northern Europe are "the right stuff" for this pulse-pounding World War II air drama! Cliff Robertson plays a combat-weary pilot whose RAF squadron is ordered on an apparent suicide mission to destroy a Nazi rocket fuel plant tucked deep into a Norwegian fjord.
George Chakiris is a resistance fighter whose fate numbers among the many ironies in the expertly written screenplay (by James Clavell and Howard Koch). To make the film, which was based on a true story, a squadron of legendary Mosquito fighter-bombers was resurrected from near extinction. Dazzling flying sequences, bone-shaking sound and superb special effects help to make this one of the most realistic air combat films ever to reach the screen.
