THE DAM BUSTERS is a classic war film, made in 1955, about the development of the bouncing bomb during the Second World War.

Language

There are several explosions when planes crash, but there is no sight of people being killed or injured. There are also scenes in which machine guns are fired.

In one scene, a character owns a dog called 'Nigger' and the name of the dog is heard a number of times in the film. The term is not used here in a derogatory fashion and it is not specifically intended as racist.
