Directed by William Wyler, The Memphis Belle: A Story of a Flying Fortress is a 1944 American documentary that chronicles the 25th and final bombing mission of the B17 airplane, "Memphis Belle." As a product of the First Motion Picture Unit, a branch of the United States Army Air Force, much of the 16mm full color footage of the plane was shot by cinematographer First Lieutenant Hard J. Tannenbaum. The film was made in hopes of boosting morale back in the United States while the country was living through World War II. The Memphis Belle became the first U.S. Army Air Forces bomber to successfully complete 25 missions in European skies and return to the United States. Captained by Robert K. Morgan, the Belle had series of crews fly during its tenure in the Air Force, but Morgan remained Captain for the greatest number of missions. In 2001 the U.S. Library of Congress selected The Memphis Belle for it's inclusion in the National Film Registry.moreless
