Film: “Bombardier”

Thursday, August 10 • 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

(RKO, 1943) Richard Wallace directed this WWII drama about the first training program for bombardiers of the United States Army Air Forces. Pat O’Brien and Randolph Scott star as the pilots in charge of training who clash over teaching methods. The supporting cast includes Eddie Albert and Robert Ryan as cadets and Anne Shirley as a civilian clerk. “Bombardier” was begun before the U.S. entered the war and underwent several revisions over the next few years, including a reference to Pearl Harbor, to accommodate the swiftly changing events of the world conflict. Authentic footage of bombardier training was shot on location at Kirtland Field in Albuquerque, New Mexico and many of the real-life cadets appeared as extras. 7:30 p.m. Free, at the Library of Congress Packard Campus Theater located at 19053 Mt. Pony Rd. in Culpeper, VA. No reservations required. For more information, call 202-707-9994.
