About this Film

The Cold Blue

ODEON says...
THE COLD BLUE is a tribute to the men who fought and risked their lives to help achieve victory - 75 years ago. Extraordinary, never before seen color footage shot by one of the greatest directors, William Wyler, puts you 30,000 feet over Nazi Germany, battling killer flak, enemy fighters and minus 60 degree temperatures. All the odds were stacked against returning home alive - whilst men died to bring this harrowing footage into cinemas today. Now, you can fly alongside the last surviving heroes who flew, who fought and who risked their lives.

Multiple Academy Award® winning director William Wyler went to Europe in 1943 to document the Air War in progress. Wyler flew actual combat missions with B-17's - and one of his three cinematographers was killed during filming. Incredibly, all of the raw color footage Wyler shot for THE MEMPHIS BELLE was recently discovered deep in the vaults of the National Archives, and a new film has been constructed out of the material.

This event will be paired with an exclusive behind the scenes look at the making of The Cold Blue. Including a compelling and evocative look at WW2 via a range of unique perspectives, how the UK viewed the support of the allied troops, poignant and difficult moments brought to life via incredible colour footage, interviews of the 8th Airforce veterans and interviews with director Eric Nelson & Wyler’s daughter Catherine, telling the remarkable story behind the “found footage” and how The Cold Blue was created.
