This week’s film was chosen by our fantastic supporters on Patreon. 1968’s Anzio stars Robert Mitchum and Peter Falk who find themselves trapped behind enemy lines after the landing at Anzio in 1944. Adapted from British war correspondent Wynford Vaughan-Thomas’s book Anzio, and directed by Edward Dmytryk and Duilio Coletti. We also find the time to fit in a mention of Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Barry Bannan and the 1943 cartoon Stop That Tank along the way!
