Watching the film last night, I'm not convinced it was at 150 ft. Either way, still scary. The producers did an excellent job I thought. left the film alone as regards shots and dialogues, but they must have virtually cleaned it up frame-by-frame. So clear, and a big screen to boot.

As regards the name. It wasn't racist, even at that time. It was the name of a much-loved black Lab. Anyone reading any racial hatred into that is sick.
I have a copy of Jonathan Falconer’s book ‘Filming the Dambusters’ (Sutton Publishing 2005, ISBN 0 7509 37 12 2).

in chapter 5 he says that when the rushes of the flying over the water during the attacks were viewed, 60’ looked ‘too high’ and most of the shots used were of Lancasters flying at 40’.
