The Memphis Belle: A Story of a Flying Fortress is a 1944 documentary 16 mm color film which provides an account of the final mission of the crew of the B-17 Memphis Belle. In May 1943 it became the third US Army Air Forces heavy bomber to complete 25 missions over Europe, but the first to return to the United States. The film was made as a morale-building inspiration for the Home Front showing the everyday courage of the men who manned these bombers.
