"From Workers — To Warriors"


  • Director: Carol Reed
  • Genre: Drama, Action & Adventure, Classics,
  • Studio: Two Cities Films
  • Subtitled | Black & White | Duration: 135 Mins

This is one of the finest "we're in this together" flag-wavers produced in Britain during the Second World War. From Eric Ambler and Peter Ustinov's script, director Carol Reed, who had earned a reputation for social realism in the mid-1930s and had spent part of the war making army documentaries, creates a totally believable world in which a squad of raw recruits becomes an integral part of the local community as they go through basic training. David Niven is top-billed, but he generously enters into the ensemble spirit that makes this beautifully observed drama as uplifting today as it was in 1944.
