Based on cartoonist David Low's parody of the old-fashioned British professional soldier, set in his ways and unable to adapt to the brutality of modern war. This story follows the career of Clive Candy, at first an idealistic, young Boer War hero, then a brigadier general, serving honorably in World War I. Finally, by World War II, he has become a bald, overweight, querulous old man, angry that his age and military experience are held in contempt, and bewildered that his lifelong code of gentlemanly conduct has become an anachronism in a world threatened by a monster like Hitler

During a blackout, three train passengers arrive at Chillingbourne in Kent. Londoner Alison Smith is a feisty representative of the Women's Land Army (aka the "land girls"). Bob Johnson is an American soldier whose intended destination was Canterbury. Peter Gibbs is a classical music student who worked in peacetime as a cinema organist. As they make their way through the village, Alison has something poured on to her hair by an unseen attacker. She is the latest victim of the Glue Man, a nocturnal rogue who harasses young women who date American soldiers. She, along with Bob and Peter, vow to track him down. Ostensibly a mystery, the film is principally a portrait of the bucolic English countryside during wartime
49th parallel by Michael Powell( visu )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 505 libraries worldwide
As the voice-over proclaims, the 49th parallel is the only undefended frontier in the world. The parallel is the goal of a small group of Nazis, survivors of a U-boat that has been spotted and sunk in Hudson Bay, deep in Canadian waters. The United States is not yet at war with Germany, and if Corporal Hirth and his six crew members can reach it, they can be repatriated to Germany with no fuss. But their trek across Canada becomes a fierce struggle to survive, as they encounter and are opposed in turn by Johnnie the trapper, a small Hutterite community, a Canadian intellectual, and a Canadian soldier gone AWOL
