    Original Theatrical Trailer
Khartoum (1966), directed by Basil Dearden and written by Robert Ardrey, is an historical epic about the ill-fated expedition of British General Charles Gordon (Charlton Heston) in late-19th-century Sudan, an attempt to halt the incursion of the fanatical Muslim leader, Muhammad Ahmad (Laurence Olivier), the self-styled Mahdi (“The Expected One”).  This action-adventure yarn, chock-full of thrilling battle sequences, stunning desert landscapes, and fascinating political intrigue led by British Prime Minister Gladstone (Ralph Richardson), is one of the last of its breed:  a large-scale roadshow extravaganza with an all-star cast.
