The movie, Catch-22, is based on Joseph Heller's critically acclaimed best-selling novel of the same name. The film is a provocative antiwar satire that tells the crazy tale of a group of American World War II fliers trapped in the insanity of the Mediterranean combat theater. The "catch-22" has to do with a military snafu that results when a bombadier name Yossarian attempts to get out of the military by feigning insanity. The catch centers on the simple fact that because he is able to acknowledge his own mortality, he must by definition be sane. Frustrated into submission, the "frazzled" Yossarian must return to the front lines only to see his friends and fellow aviators die off one by one. As they say, the situation is a real "catch-22". Although this moive is a antiwar satire, the filming of so many B-25s moving about the airfield and the many flying scenes make this a must-see film for anyone interested in World War II era military aviation. Starring Alan Arkin, Martin Balsam and Jon Voight. Widescreen in color. Released in 1970. Runtime 121 minutes.
