A piece of insider trivia that has come out from LucasArts over the years:The climactic bombing run against the bridges in BAT-R was the model used by George Lucas and ILM for their own iconic Death Star Trench Run climaxing Star Wars (A New Hope) ; much of it comprises a shot- by- shot re-creation.
Head for the Bridges
- Bob Hendrick
This way underrated story about Navy pilots flying missions in the Korean War has a strange attraction for me. Adapted from James A. Michener's novel of the same name, It's main character (played with his usual aplomb by William Holden), is a reluctant hero who has to reconcile his duty to his country and his family. No one does this better than Holden. Grace Kelly and Fredric March are fine as Holden's wife and Admiral respectively. "The bitter realities of war are driven home in one of Michener's most poignant and concise works of fiction", to quote one reviewer. Director Mark Robson brings it faithfully to the screen.Submitted by: Bob Hendrick firstname.lastname@example.org
good action film
A fairly realistic look at an aircraft carrier with the scenes involving the attacks in the bridges first rate. Good action scenes.
A wonderful, but underated film
I am a big Grace Kelly fan and William Holden is also one of my favourite film stars. They work well together in this film and it is a brilliant drama acted well. If you are a Grace Kelly or William Holden fan, this is a must see film!
