THE BATTLES OF CORONEL AND FALKLAND ISLANDS

Classic Cinema Club – Ealing presents: THE BATTLES OF CORONEL AND FALKLAND ISLANDS + RECORDED SCORE performed by The Band of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines at Ealing Town Hall (09 NOV 19:30):

British Instructional Films made this thrilling recreation of two pivotal battles between the British and German navies during World War One. The epic production was mostly shot at sea using real ships, with stunning results. It focuses on the strength of the men and machines, and covers defeat, sunken vessels, the retaliatory strike and boost to morale. Originally released on Armistice Day to commemorate the fallen, it is now hailed as “one of the greatest British films from the silent era” and “the best British war film you’ve never seen”.

With a recorded score by composer Simon Dobson, performed by The Band of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines.

Silent with English inter-titles

Director Walter Summers
