Product Details

Target for Tonight is another first-rate wartime documentary drama from the prolific writer-director Harry Watt, the onetime Robert Flaherty assistant whose talents truly blossomed under the guidance of master propagandist John Grierson. This 48-minute film details the experiences of a single Royal Air Force bomber and its courageous crew, all played by actual members of the RAF. After guiding the viewer through the various ground-crew stations, strategy centers and map rooms, director Watt enters the bomber itself as the crew gears itself for another mission over Germany-one which ends almost before it begins when the plane is hit with machine-gun flack (a truly frightening sequence). Though the screenplay is obviously a composite of several missions, the film's irrefutable authenticity is stamped on every frame.
