Incredibly, the entirety of the raw color footage Wyler and his team shot for the documentary 'The Memphis Belle: A Story of a Flying Fortress' was recently discovered in the vaults of the National Archives. After a meticulous frame-by-frame restoration, director Erik Nelson ('Dreams with Sharp Teeth,' 'A Gray State') has constructed a compelling new documentary out of the material.
