This is the story of how MI5 in World War 2, turned the body of a Welsh tramp who committed suicide with rat poison, into a fictional character that saved the lives of hundreds, possibly thousands of allied troops who where tasked to take Sicily from the Germans.
It's been called the greatest deception since the Trojen Horse.
If you have an hour to spare, it is worth a watch!

It is a good Doc. not just history, it has a bit of humour in it as well!
The original thing was thought up by Ian Fleming. who invented James Bond 007

Here's a little trick for watching BBC stuff outside the UK, or the comedy central stuff (like Colbert and Stewart) outside the USA.

Download the trial version of tunnel bear. It's a service that changes your IP to fool websites into thinking you're in their country. You get something like 500 mb free per month on the trial version without having to pay.

Now here is the trick. I've found that if you stop tunnel bear after you've started watching the movie, the site still thinks you're in the UK or US, and keeps giving you the video feed, often at a faster rate than tunnel bear were able to get it to you, but it only counts that first little bit against your free 500 mb, before you turned TB off.

There was also a film made about this called "The man who never was."

A real beauty of a true story provides the basis for The Man Who Never Was, a gripping World War II picture that has no combat scenes, no great vistas of troops. The time is 1943, as the Allies prepare the invasion of Sicily and desperately need a diversionary ploy to make the Germans suspect another invasion target. The solution is simple but ingenious: a dead man's body will be left in the sea to float ashore on the coast of Spain; made to look like a British pilot, he will be carrying papers suggesting an Allied attack on Greece. When the papers fall to the Nazis, they'll swallow the bogus story…or will they? The film's final third tracks an Irish spy for the Axis (Steven Boyd, in one of his first roles) as he travels to London to investigate loose ends.

Clifton Webb gives a crisp, disciplined performance as Ewen Montagu, the officer in charge of the scheme. The film errs only in some melodrama involving Gloria Grahame, the histrionic roommate of an Intelligence worker. Other than that, director Ronald Neame brings his steady, classy approach to bear on a good yarn, and saves special grace for the treatment of the unfortunate dead man who unwittingly loaned his body to a stunt that saved hundreds, if not thousands, of lives. The film's final haunting shots capture the ethereal shiver of its title.


Good post - interesting. :flop:
