Two Men Went To War (PG)

Director John Henderson. Comedy/War/Drama

Set in 1942 during World War II, this is eccentric but true tale (based on 'Amateur Commandos' by Raymond Foxall) begins at a backwater barracks, where Sergeant Peter King and Private Leslie Cuthbertson practice the art of dentistry. Faced by one rejection too many to see frontline duty, they decide to take matters into their own hands and set off on a mission, to engage in active combat on their own behalf in France against the Germans. Armed with weapons and dentistry equipment, of course, they must first cross the channel in secret. A charming film about two men desperate to live out their dreams.

Starring Derek Jacobi, Kenneth Cranham, Leo Bill
