The Four Feathers 1939
130 mins United Kingdom Director. Zoltan Korda
Stirring and ambitiously mounted adaptation of A.E.W. Mason’s popular adventure novel set during the Anglo-Sudan War of the late nineteenth century. The lush Technicolor photography and splendid Sudanese locations enhance this exciting tale of redemption, as an army officer accused of cowardice proves his worth on the battlefields of Sudan. The superb Ralph Richardson as a soldier blinded in battle comes out top in the acting stakes.
