It wasn't about Brown. It was the other "B" pilot, Billy Bishop
. The movie was called "The Kid Who Couldn't Miss". The Canadian Senate held a series of hearings on the movie, and though they didn't censor it (although a lot of people wanted them too), they did have it reclassified a "docu-drama" with a disclaimer attached. It came out in 1982.
If you want more info, I suggest you check out the following URL
You will find a wealth of info there on the subject as well as Billy Bishop himself. And Yes, it's MY website, and I expect to be adding even more to it.
Just for you info. It was only shown in Canada once that I know of. You can still get a copy from the NFB, but it hasn't been shown on Canadian TV since, and to my knowledge, Paul Cowan (the producer) hasn't made any films since either.
