Touching home-front drama following a group of women as they get to grips with working in a munitions factory
Dir: Frank Launder and Sidney Gilliat Cert: U
Filmed during the height of World War II, this touching home-front drama follows a group of women as they get to grips with working in a munitions factory. The factory in question was the Spitfire works in Castle Bromwich, and many of the women you see in the film were actual employees. Tonight for the first time in decades Millions Like Us returns to the area where it was filmed, preceded by a special performance from the City of Birmingham Brass Band. This 70-year old institution were themselves based at the Spitfire works for many years.
Presented in association with Active Arts Castle Vale.
