A Bridge Too Far

A Bridge Too Far (1977)

Director: Richard Attenborough
Screenplay: William Goldman (based on the book by Cornelius Ryan)
Role: Lt-Gen Frederick Browning

As Lt Gen Frederick (“Boy”) Browning at Arnhem, Dirk gave a respectable performance, but it was one he grew to regret bitterly because of the stir caused in high circles by the film’s interpretation of Browning’s role in the military debacle.
