Those Magnificent Men

Synopsis:
Those Magnificent Men is a hilarious spiffing yarn of the bravery of two plucky British pioneers, Captain John Alcock, a dashing WW1 fighter pilot, and his intrepid companion Lieutenant Arthur Whitten Brown, navigational genius despite a gammy leg, as they attempt to compete in a race to fly non-stop across the Atlantic. At stake is a 10,000 prize offered by Lord Northcliffe from the Daily Mail and, more importantly, the honour and pride of the British spirit of adventure.
