The most underrated War flick I've ever seen, probably. Great aerial dogfights with bi-planes, some amazingly epic shots that put you right in the war, and some pretty good characterization. Don't bother with Flyboys - Blue Max is where it's at. 8)

This classic film portrays Peppard as a German foot soldier who finds his way into the German airforce where he interacts with upper class officers. He is determined to prove he is as good as any of them, no, better than them, by earning the coveted medal, The Blue Max.

One of the strongest obscure Hollywood classics out there. Unique in the fact the storyline is told from the point of view of the Germans during WWI. Interesting in that George Peppard plays his lead role brilliantly. Almost too good a movie for it's time, worth a viewing if you're a history buff or just like old-school filmmaking.
