Breaker Morant!?! a courtroom drama, albeit in khaki,based on a novel telling the fictional story of a conspiracy theory version of an actual event. For f@*£ sake they didn't even use use an Australian actor for the main role. And before anybody tells me that's because Morant was the estranged son of English aristocracy, no he wasn't. The only thing that film "got right" were Morants last words, "Shoot straight you bastards!", which I have to admit were pretty cool last words.

If that film got it right we should have Braveheart or Destination Burma in the poll.

Rant mode over. I voted 12 O'clock High by the way.
