View Full Version : German War Film Called "The Bridge"

Made in the 1950s I believe and rated as one of the best war films ever made. Quite an anti-war message and very controversial in it's time.

I'm desperate to track down a subtitled copy of this but had no luck at the usual places (amazon, ebay etc). Any idea?

Didn't look very hard (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B0000646UM/ref=ase_internetmoviedat/103-3340731-7038267?v=glance&s=dvd#product-details) :p

I like John Wayne 50's films about beating the slant eyed yellow peril. Classic :)

So, use a regionless player to watch it. They are cheap these days, and easily findable (for example from any Japanese Import/Exporter I've checked out online in the past few years).

I have seen it rogers, its worth finding.

Never heard of it before - sounds interesting though!

Whatever you do, don't get the dubbed version - I did that with Stalingrad. Big mistake! I'd rather have subtitles any day...

My favourite war film is probably Cross of Iron by Sam Peckinpah:)

I haven't seen Cross of Iron in years, as I recall, Colburn was excellent in that.

Yup, it was on TV recently - great film.

I'll have to check the manual for my DVD player - it may or may not be "regionless". Odd though - it didnt turn up on Amazon last time I looked
