Tally Ho!
A brief spot of intel on these posters.

They're all actually the same motion picture, "First of the Few" a cheery British flag waver from the dark days of 1942.
"Spitfire" was it's title in the USA & Sweden, Finland, etc (not Germany,however...).

Leslie Howard, a top heroic star at the time had his best ever role playing RJ Mitchell, the inventor of the world's greatest fighter plane, the Spitfire.
Tragically, it would be Leslie's last film as he was killed a year later when the Germans shot down his unarmed transport plane.
