DAS BOOT (1981)

At the time the most expensive German movie ever made, Das Boot’s relied largely on a flotilla U-boat miniatures, one of which, ahem, resurfaced in Raiders Of The Lost Ark. This full-scale model of U-96, seen here slipping out of La Rochelle harbour, was just a hull covering an engine, like the kind of thing Arthur Daley might have sold the Kriegsmarine. Sure enough, it took the first opportunity to sink. Undeterred, Wolfgang Petersen’s crew just nailed it back together again.

Time for another work experience bod to check some facts I think - Theron (Dominic West) didn't trot off to fight Xerxes! He stayed at home to lock "horns" with Cersei! More
