Target For Tonight

723. TARGET FOR TONIGHT (Target!) (1941-England). Filmed with the cooperation of the Royal Air Force. “This is the authentic story of a bombing raid on Germany…how it is planned and how it is executed. Every person seen in the picture is a member of the Royal Air Force, from Commander-in-Chief to aircraft-hand, re-enacting his own daily life on the job. They are the men and women who actually direct, plan, and execute the raids.” Matter-of-factly done, but the cumulative effect builds to the explosive climax (literally). Academy Award Winner-Best Documentary Feature (1941). The film is specifically about Bomber “F For Freddie” on a typical mission to bomb a German oil storage depot, but on a broader scale it shows how the RAF organized to save England. Well done. 50 minutes. Documentary
