Adapted from the Pierre Bouelle novelBridge on The River Kwai is a stirring WWII drama carried by terrific performances by Alec Guinness and Sessue Hayakawa, and widely considered as one of the greatest films of all time.  
 
British POWs in a Japanese prison camp in Burma are forced to build a bridge to aid the war effort of their captors. British and American officers plan to sabotage the construction and blow up the structure, but when their commanding officer orders them to complete the work, they must wonder are they slaves or soldiers.  
 
A gripping drama, expertly put together and handled with skill in all departments... engrossing entertainment, including some scenes which will be listed as among the best of film memorabilia’ – Variety
