In 1969 a film was made of the battle. You couldn't make it today - not only were there dozens of period aircraft (filmed from a B-25 that had been converted into a flying camera station), but it had an all-star cast of patriotic British actors: Sir Lawrence Olivier, Christopher Plummer, Michael Redgrave, and Michael Caine were only a few of the cast.
The music score was originally by Sir William Walton (a venerable composer of the day) but United Artists didn't like it and brought in the American Ron Goodwin. Olivier protested, threatening to have his name removed from the credits, so a compromise was struck where both scores were merged. The result is, once again, something that would never be made today but which worked well in the film.
