New Red Baron Movie

Some of the most spectacular films about the Great War have been about the air war - not surprising as it is a picturesque and fascinating aspect of what was otherwise a pretty grim conflict. Recently we had the movie Flyboys which used digital technology well - this year we have the Red Baron - kind of obvious that someone would do that subject - given the popularity of films like the Blue Max (1966). This trailer looks good. Apparently cost £14 million - and is unusual in that it is a German movie about the war. News article about Red Baron's chivalrous image. Daughter Bea just asked me if Snoopy was in it...No Ich don't think so... German trailer here (with different scenes)
