Editorial Reviews

Narrated by Orson Welles and Winston Churchill, this film
is the only authorized documentary of Churchill s war years.
Few men have stridden through the pages of history like
Winston Spencer Churchill. Soldier, author, painter, and
above all Parliamentarian, Churchill s remarkable public
life spanned one of the most tumultuous periods in
human history: from the jubilee of Queen Victoria to the
presidency of John F. Kennedy.
Churchill: The Finest Hours is an inspired tribute to Sir
Winston Churchill as he is best remembered, the war leader
rallying the British nation in her darkest days during the
fury of the Nazi onslaught. Using his superb mastery of the
English language, Churchill gave hope to the vanquished and
strengthened the resolve of all who shared his indomitable
fighting spirit. This celebrated overview of the great British
leader uses contemporary and archival footage to detail
Churchill s accomplishments during wartime and peace.

Chapters

Britain through its darkest days to eventual victory over Germany.

This 2 CD and 1 DVD set of "Churchill: The Finest Hours", is a superbly crafted commentary. Orson Wells' naration is a delight. This three disc set is a must for any serious Churchill afficionado

This is a quick brief summary of the life of Winston Churchill. It doesn't get into the weeds in detailing the minute details of his life but rather gives a good overall picture of the man's life. It doesn't hurt that they also use recordings of his speeches and it is narrated by Orsen Wells.

Always a hero and an inspirational leader when needed most. A wise, witty, wonderful, and charming man of immense talent and knowledge. A totally unique man from a long line of strong leaders. I enjoyed all of the film, very well-done, w/an amazing cast of characters: Roosevelt, Stalin, Eisenhower, DeGaulle, and the many thousands of brave soldiers, sailors and underground fighters who won the war.

An extremely candid piece of history with outstanding acting. Occasionally the usual WWII (if not black and white) dark photographic techniques often used depicting this era are somewhat difficult to see, even on HD.
