I'd love to see "The Blue Max" again. I recall enjoying its music too.

As someone who has studied the air war of both WWI and WWII, "The Blue Max" is one of the best films on the subject. It illustrates the drive for air victories and decorations by German fighter pilots in both wars.

We Americans and the Germans were the two countries most serious about counting the number of aircraft shot down by fighter pilots.
