The Memphis Belle: A Story of a Flying Fortress – 4K Restoration

The Memphis Belle: A Story of a Flying Fortress is possibly the most unique and well-known military documentary ever made. Directed by legendary Hollywood film director William Wyler, this 1944 film follows the famous B-17 Flying Fortress known as the “Memphis Belle” on her 25th and final mission during World War II.

In 1942, Major Wyler went to England to film heavy bomber operations in Europe. He and his cameramen shared the same dangers as the bomber crews. In April 1943, one of those cameramen, 46-year-old Lt. Harold Tannenbaum who was himself a World War I Veteran, was killed on a mission over St. Nazaire, France when the B-17 in which he was flying was shot-down.

Wyler flew two of his five combat missions on the Memphis Belle, including the crew’s 25th mission. The incredible footage Wyler and his men recorded appeared in the final 1944 motion picture.

The film was commissioned by the First Motion Picture Unit of the United States Army Air Forces and created to build morale back at home by telling the crew’s story. For the first time since its original release, this film has now been restored to its original state and presented in stunning 4K.

Catherine Wyler, daughter of director William Wyler and Executive Producer of the 4K restoration of her Father’s film, will be on-hand for the November 8th screening at the Carnegie Science Center’s Rangos Giant Cinema where she will provide insight into her father’s service, the making of the film, and the importance of the 4K restoration.
