Movie Reviews

This is not Henry Watt's 1941 classic "Target For Tonight"
T. Mitchell | 11/26/2004
(1 out of 5 stars)

"This is not a bad DVD, but if you expecting Henry Watt's 1941 classic of the same title or anything remotely as interesting, you will be disappointed."
This DVD is not the RAF film "Target for Tonight"
Charles A. MAUK | Williamston, Michigan | 10/03/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I just purchased the DVD in this listing. It is not the RAF 1941 film, "Target for Tonight"; it is rather a comprehensive documentary about the bombings of three German Cities, with narration, color footage, and was obviously produced for British television. I kept the disc because it is well produced; however, if you are expecting the RAF featurette about the bombing of oil storage at Freihausen, Germany, you will be disappointed. I think somebody dropped the ball. This DVD is titled "THE Target for Tonight". Oddly, there is about 45 seconds of beautifully restored footage of the RAF film, but it is NOT the original, not the film directed by Harry Watt."

"This is a jumble of war-time newsreels, not Pick Pickard in F for Freddie. The title of the DVD when it plays is The Target for Tonight. The real Target for Tonight starring Pickard's crew is available on VHS from Belle and Blade, or you can try searching for a Region 2 DVD from the UK. Very disappointed in the description given for this product."
