When British POWs build a vital railway bridge in enemy-occupied Burma, Allied commandos are assigned to destroy it in David Lean's epic World War II adventure The Bridge On The River Kwai. Spectacularly produced, The Bridge On The River Kwai captured the imagination of the public and won seven 1957 Academy Awards®, including Best Picture, Best Actor (Alec Guinness), and Best Director. Even it's theme song, an old WWII whistling tune, the Colonel Bogey March, became a massive hit. The Bridge On the River Kwai continues today as one of the most memorable cinematic experiences of all time.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: This complex war epic asks hard questions, resists easy answers, and boasts career-defining work from star Alec Guinness and director David Lean.
Sunday Times (UK)
I have rarely seen, in a film of action, a better cast. In the end, then, it is the people who count, and as individuals, obstinate, proud, muddled, humiliated, fanatically intent on the task in hand: not as the puppets who infest most war films.
