The Bridge on the River Kwai

The Bridge On The River Kwai is an entertaining movie, but there was always something that seemed very off about it. Lt. Colonel Nicholson, the British officer who decides to build a great bridge to show the Japanese the superiority of the English, is a ridiculous character that is hard to take seriously. Above is a video that discusses the actual building of that bridge and Lt. Colonel Philip Toosey DSO, the British officer who commanded the POWs, and who was far from the blithering nitwit shown in the movie.
