"Thunderbolt" (1947) (Part 1 of 5) Director: William Wyler, John Sturges Production Company: Carl Krueger Production Introduced by James Stewart
Filmed in 1944 and early 1945 but edited only in 1947, this 45 minutes well preserved and almost forgotten documentary (by the great William Wyler) is about the P-47 Thunderbolt fighter bomber and its use in missions over Italy. In the prologue outstanding shots showing various placements of 1944 late model automatic color movie-cameras on board of the planes.
