Battle of Britain showing at Library of Congress Packard Campus

BATTLE OF BRITAIN (United Artists, 1969)
The Battle of Britain, which began 75 years ago this month, was the first major campaign of WWII to be fought entirely by air forces. Waged by the German Air Force (Luftwaffe) against the United Kingdom, the battle lasted for three months and three weeks and included the worst of the London Blitz. For this British made film, producer Harry Saltzman and director Guy Hamilton assembled over 100 vintage planes and hired three of the greatest veteran flying aces of the battle - two British and one German - as technical advisers. The story alternates personal vignettes of commanders, flyers and civilians with vivid dogfight sequences. The all-star British cast includes Laurence Olivier, Trevor Howard, Ralph Richardson, Michael Caine, Robert Shaw and Susannah York.

You’ll Never Get Rich showing at Library of Congress Packard Campus

YOU’LL NEVER GET RICH (Columbia, 1941)
The first of two musicals that paired Fred Astaire and Rita Hayworth, “You’ll Never Get Rich” (followed by “You Were Never Lovelier” in 1942), was a successful career move for both. Astaire proved he could carry a picture without his popular partner Ginger Rogers while Hayworth, after languishing in B movies at Columbia, was finally given a starring role in a big budgeted film. Directed by Sidney Lanfield with a story made up of a series of misunderstandings that lead to romance, the musical comedy features a Cole Porter score, bravura dancing by the two stars, and Robert Benchley to provide witty banter. Combining elements of a behind-the-scenes musical and a life-in-uniform military comedy, the film was a box-office success praised by Variety for being "a happy combination of music, dancing and comedy."
Black & white, 88 min.
