Watch The Bridge On The River Kwai

David Lean's Oscar-winning, epic tale of stoicism and fortitude from World War Two stars Alec Guinness as the British officer who, given little choice, commands his fellow PoWs to build a strategic railway bridge for their Japanese captor. William Holden is the American saboteur in charge of the Allied operation engineered to undo all their work. With hard-baked ideas of morality and defiance appearing to crack under the Asian sun, the only certainty is that you'll never forget how to whistle the theme tune. Won seven Oscars, including Best Actor for Guinness, Best Director, Screenplay, Music and Picture. Magnificent.
