Appointment With Venus

Based on a true story, Appointment With Venus is a fine example of the indomitable British spirit during World War 2 in the face of Nazi tyranny.

The Nazis occupied the Channel Islands in 1940 and amongst the population on the tiny island of Amorel is Venus, a pedigree cow, whose ability to produce high quality milk is legendary. So well-known is Venus that she has even come to the attention of Hitler who wants to send her to Germany to breed with the Teutonic herds he claims are the best in the world.

To deny Hitler his prize and boost morale at home, British Special Forces - led by Major Moreland (David Niven) and ably assisted by Nicola Fallaize (Glynis Johns) and the Islanders - mount a dangerous operation to rescue Venus and return her to England.

A superb ensemble cast includes Kenneth More, Bernard Lee and Richard Wattis.
