The Bridge on the River Kwai

David Lean's 1957 CinemaScope classic earned seven Oscars. Alec Guinness creates an indelible portrait of a British officer whose obsession with martial order leads him to unwittingly help his Japanese captors in a World War II prison camp. No one who sees it can forget the famous whistling march or Guinness' "What have I done?" moment of realization. William Holden, Jack Hawkins, and Sessue Hayakawa co-star. They don't make movies much better than this. Call for showtimes. (NR) BRIAN MILLER
