  • The Way Ahead

    1944. Great Britain. Directed by Carol Reed. With David Niven, James Donald, John Laurie, Peter Ustinov, Trevor Howard. This stirring evocation of the British wartime ethos follows a disparate group of soldiers as they come together under Niven’s gentle but firm command. This was Niven’s second wartime propaganda assignment; his first, The First of the Few (Spitfire), was directed by Leslie Howard, who was shot down by a Nazi fighter plane later that same year. Reed’s next film was to be The True Glory, the official Allied documentary on the re-conquest of Europe 91 min.
