Digital restoration of a classic film with soundtrack.
Based on John Monk Saunders’ short story “The Flight Commander”, The Dawn Patrol stars Errol Flynn, Basil Rathbone and David Niven as World War I British fighter pilots who split their time between drinking beer and gunning down their German foes. However, the harsh realities of war soon compromise their reckless gallantry as the futility of combat and the certainty of death becomes clearer and clearer.
