THE BRIDGE ON THE RIVER KWAI - Oscar Classics

177 min | PG
When British POWs build a vital railway bridge in enemy–occupied Burma, Allied commandos are assigned to destroy it in David Lean’s epic World War II adventure THE BRIDGE ON THE RIVER KWAI. Spectacularly produced, THE BRIDGE ON THE RIVER KWAI captured the imagination of the public and won seven 1957 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Actor (Alec Guinness), and Best Director. Even its theme song, an old WWII whistling tune, the Colonel Bogey March, became a massive hit. THE BRIDGE ONTHE RIVER KWAI continues today as one of the most memorable cinematic experiences of all time.
