Join us for our Friday morning talk, where Melody Foreman will be talking to us about the research into the film stars behind her book, ‘From the Battlefield to the Big Screen’.

Melody will look closely behind the lives of the stars who appeared in a host of legendary war films and discover how memories of their real-life experiences in the armed forces were haunted with heartbreak and yet filled with extraordinary heroism. Focusing on Audie Murphy, Laurence Olivier, Vivien Leigh, and Dirk Bogarde.

This talk will take place onsite in the Museum’s Learning Centre and is included in Museum admission or Annual Membership.
