War Movies

Dirk Bogarde served in the war and made a lot of war movies afterwards. My mother is watching one of them now. I wonder whether actors of his generation got sick of having to keep going back into uniform.

David Niven- who had a "good war"- is reported to have encouraged his troops before a fight with a little speech that went, "It's all right for you chaps; you only have to do it once. But I'll have to do it all over again with Errol Flynn in Hollywood".
