This two disc video tells the story of the real Memphis Belle, named for Margaret Polk, and its even more exciting than Hollywood’s fact-inspired version. The First Film Unit of the US Army Air Force made a 45 minute documentary that was first released in 1944 to mark the safe completion of a full tour by the Memphis Belle and her crew. This marks the start of this video and is followed by rare out-takes that include a visit by HM King George VI and HM Queen Elizabeth, a slide show and 90 page downloadable study document.
