"This dvd set contains Sound Barrier(1952)with Ralph Richardson, Angels One Five(1952)with Jack Hawkins, King and Country and Captive Heart(1946)with Michael Redgrave. Captive Heart is the only one I have seen. It is very well done. Michael Redgrave portrays an concentration camp escapee impersonating a dead British soldier. He must correspond with the soldier's wife when he becomes a POW so they will not suspect his real identity. The wife is played by Rachel Kempson who was Sir Michael's wife in real life."
Interesting films, if you get them all

"Some interesting films here, especially 'Breaking the Sound Barrier' and 'Angels One Five' spread over three discs. Unfortunately, my order contained a duplicate of the second disc instead of the actual third disc.
Fortunatley for me, the two movies I listed above were the ones I actually ordered this boxed set for.
You are SOL trying to find those two films elsewhere, so you have no choice but to order this boxed set."

"The DVD version of "Breaking the sound barrier" 1952, a David Lean production, that I watched is disk one of "The World War Collection" May 27, 2008; this is funny as it has nothing to do with a war.
Originally produced by London Films. Copyright 1952 British Lion Film Corporation Ltd. at Shepperton. With the co-operation of the Ministry of Supply and the Director and Members of the Society of British Aircraft Constructors.
The film itself had Great Britton 1952 typed all over it. We get lots of footage of different 50's jets (The de Havilland COMET, The Vickers-Supermarine ATTACKER, the de Havilland VAMPIRE 113, and The Vickers-Supermarine SWIFT Rolls-Royce `Avon' Engine.)
The basic Story and Screenplay by Terence Rattigan is of a father and owner of an aircraft industry. He wants to have the mysterious and unknown sound barrier broken. His excuse is "because it is there." It appears to his daughter that he is rather callus and will sacrifice the lives of his own and son-in-law to accomplish his goal. Will father and daughter come to terms or understanding of each other's world or will the daughter save her son from a similar fait in the insatiable clutches of her father.
