A Bridge Too Far

Out of the sky comes the screen's most incredible spectacle of men and war!

A Bridge Too Far (1977)


A Bridge Too Far tells the story of Operation Market Garden, the failed attempt by the allies to end the war quickly by securing three bridges in Holland and allowing access over the Rhine into Germany. A combination of poor allied intelligence and the presence of two crack German Panzer divisions meant that the final part of this operation (the bridge in Arnhem over the Rhine, the titular 'bridge too far') was doomed to failure.

Director: Richard Attenborough
