    A good article on BBC News about the life of Pierre Boulle, best known as the author of The Planet of the Apes but also wrote The Bridge on the River Kwai.

    And even less well known was that he served in Force 136 in the Second World War.

    Thanks Lee,

    Two films I would probably always watch if I stumbled upon them whilst flicking about on the remote. :)
