Based on Richard Hughes's classic novel. As is usually, but not always, the case, the book is much better. Resisting attempted Disneyfication, director Alexander Mackendrick set out to make a faithful adaptation of Hughes's story, but the studio made him cut twenty-five minutes, and this, he felt, ruined the film. It's worth a look nonetheless.
