Does it have anything to do with Simon & Garfunkel?

Well, not Blue Max and not Simon & Garfunkel, but a proper WW1 flying film.

The Red Baron, a porno flick with Angela Barron? Not likely, this is more cerebral than that!

Actually...did you know that "The Red Baron" is slated for a 2007 release? Promises to be a good WWI flying movie in the same vein as "Flyboys" although I have not seen it yet.

I have not seen "Flyboys" yet, correction to my previous post.

Well I hope it is better than "Flyboys".
They had all that computer power and the only planes they got right was the Nieuports, The German planes were all wrong, the tactics all wrong in several important cases, the other allied planes were wrong, the love story was so incongruous, if they spent all that money, why did they not do it better, I do not expect it to be perfect, but much better than "Flyboys"

OK, I am writng this on a new interface. Plus 613 has changed, or is it only for us with Firefox.

Anyhow, the film is "von Richthoven and Brown". Some of the footage from this film was used in the other WW1 flying film at the time - "Aces High".

"von Richthoven and Brown" is in my opinion a better film than "Blue Max", well worth looking for. I do not think it can be found on DVD. Unfortunately I only have a Spanish VHS, which limits the enjoyment somewhat!

Will have to look it up, BTW I didn't like Flyboys that much:
-They had several Red scarlet Focker DR1 tiplanes, mainly the red baron was the only one with that color scheme
- The only Black American aviator in the 'Lafayette' served in the Lafayette flying corps not on the 'Escadrille'
- the movie starts the pilots in 1914 and the types of planes they fly in the movie are from 1917-18
I guess when Hollywood grabs a good story it just screws it up.

You're right!

Only Fokker Dr1, no Fokker DVII, no Albratrosses, no Pfalzes, no

Hmmm, thanks for the heads up regarding "Flyboys" and I probably would not have guessed this movie title without some research. I've heard of it, but have never seen it.

When has Hollywood ever gotten it completely right anyway? One of the most blatantly wrong films IMHO was "The bridge over the river Kwai" among others I'm reluctant to say that they occupy a space in my collection.

They got it right with "the Grapes of Wrath"!

and I think that some of the war movies were not too bad, but then, most of the really good ones were not Hollywood, but other productions.

One film that showed combat well, is the beginning of "Finding Private Ryan". The beach landing scene is exactly like the way I felt during my first combat moments...

I have not seen the "Grapes of Wrath" since Christ was a child. Thanks for the reminder, I would agree with you on that one.

The beach landing scene from "Saving Private Ryan" is indeed a remarkable cinematic feat. I have a VHS and two DVD copies of that one...don't ask me why!
