The Battle of the River Plate (1956)

Powell and Pressburger direct John Gregson, Anthony Quayle and Peter Finch in this WII retelling of an early naval battle.

A rare misfire from The Archers, though it was one of their most financially successful releases. The true story is quite unusual so it is a shame this takes the dullest route to tell it. At least it often looks just as lush and beautiful as you’d expect.
