Bridge on the River Kwai - full length movie. Oscars galore for this 1958 movie.  It was taken out after dozens of air raids by US Army Air Corps bombers (not by a sapper team lead by supposed USS Houston survivor (William Holden). A bit melodramatic and prisoners with a bit too much fat on their bones, but somewhat accurate and historic other than the bridge was NOT blown by the prisoners or a sabotage team at all.

The Story of the USS Houston & the POW Experiences

The True Story of the Bridge on the River Kwai (History Channel) - Available from The History Channel. This two hour documentary takes the fluff out of the melodrama movie and gives the real inside story.  Note: The prisoners DID NOT whistle as they went to work as slaves on the railroad.  Highly recommended by the Houston Survivors as an accurate presentation.

The Warbirds of Sussex

To End All Wars (movie) - Starring Keifer Sutherland, this powerful and profound explosive war film is based on an amazing true story. Captured by the Japanese, a group of courageous soldiers are forced to build the infamous "Railway of Death" between Thailand and Burma during the height of WW II. But the intense battles come from within each prisoner who must face his own personal struggle for freedom, survival and hope in the face of inhumanity.
