This ripped-from-the-headlines film is based on the true story of 16-year-old Hannah Anderson, the San Diego cheerleader who was found in the Idaho wilderness with family friend James DiMaggio after her mother and brother were found murdered in DiMaggio’s burning home. The ensuing investigation raised questions about how close Hannah and her captor really were and what she really knew about the crimes.
Two weeks of festivities at Charlotte Motor Speedway continues today with the Xfinity series' Hisense 300. A field including Ty Dillon, Chase Elliott, Chris Buescher, Darrell Wallace Jr. and Regan Smith will do battle on the 1.5-mile quad oval in a race won last year by Kyle Larson.
Real combat footage and a compelling story make this 1949 drama one of the best World War II movies ever. Told in flashback a la "Saving Private Ryan," it's the story of an American bomber unit in Britain mounting a series of daring daylight raids on Germany.

Savage, for whom the pressure proves too great, makes the film. Gary Merrill also stars.
