A historically accurate account of the attack made by Royal Air Force No. 617 Squadron on German dams on May 16-17 1943, utilizing a new secret "bouncing bomb" developed to destroy the Möhne, Edersee and Sorpe dams located in Germany's military-industrial heartland, the Ruhr valley. The film's attack sequences were inspirational for, and sometimes virtually duplicated in, the Death Star battle scenes in the movie Star Wars, and both Gilbert Taylor, Director of Photography for The Dam Busters, and Stuart Freeborn, The Dam Buster's Makeup Supervisor, worked on Star Wars as well. It is also the first film appearance (uncredited) by Patrick McGoohan. One of the great war classics (Black & White, 2:05).
