Classic British film, The Dam Busters will be available on DVD, Blu-ray and EST and Collector’s Edition via StudioCanal’s Vintage Classics label from June 4th and to celebrate we’ve got two copies on Blu-ray to giveaway!

Directed by Michael Anderson, The Dam Busters tells the incredible true story of Commander Guy Gibson (Richard Todd) and his squadron, charged with taking out the supposedly impenetrable Ruhr river dams of Germany with the ingeniously designed bouncing bomb, during the Second World War.

Both DVD and Blu-ray versions contain a host of extras including an exclusive ‘Making of The Dam Busters’ documentary. The Collector’s Edition will include the feature in 1.37 and 1.75 aspect ratios, a 64-page booklet, a rare aerial photographic print of the Möhne Dam following the raid (signed by the surviving members of the original 617 Squadron), an RAF Chastise Lancaster Bombers poster and a set of 5 art cards. It’s available to pre-order from Amazon here https://amzn.to/2I4z400

For the 2018 restoration of the film, StudioCanal went back to the original 1954 camera negative and sound negative. The camera negative was scanned at 4K resolution in 16bit and the ACES workflow was applied to the restoration process which resulted in the creation of a 4K DCP, UHD version and a new HD version which were produced with the same high technological standards as today’s biggest international film releases.

To be in with a chance of winning, simply answer this question:

Guy Gibson was Commander of which Squadron?
