Sixty-four years after James Dean's fatal car crash, Hollywood has a new role for the "Rebel Without a Cause."
With the help of "full-body" CGI, which uses real footage and photos, Dean, who died in 1955 at age 24, will posthumously play Rogan in the live action Vietnam era-film, "Finding Jack," according to The Hollywood Reporter Wednesday. The film, adapted from Gareth Crocker's 2011 novel of the same name, focuses on the over 10,000 military dogs abandoned following the end of the Vietnam War.
LONDON (Reuters) - Twenty years after first toying with the idea, German film director Roland Emmerich brings his World War II drama Midway to cinemas next month, focusing on the 1942 Battle of Midway.

This is a list of British war movies that I found interesting. They are mostly not in the literary film genre, but I like them in many cases because they touch on war in unlikely locales. A few are spy/military combos. It is not a "Best British War Films" list; it is an eccentric sampler of British war films that curious TLMers might explore.
