Description
This spectacular Technicolor epic, directed by Zoltan Korda, is considered the finest of the many adaptations of A.E.W. Mason's classic 1902 adventure novel about the British empire's exploits in Africa, and a crowning achievement of Alexander Korda's legendary production company, London Films. Set at the end of the nineteenth century, The Four Feathers follows the travails of a young officer (John Clements) accused of cowardice after he resigns his post on the eve of a major deployment to Khartoum; he must fight to redeem himself in the eyes of his fellow officers (including Ralph Richardson) and fiancée (June Duprez). Featuring music by Miklos Rozsa and Oscar-nominated cinematography by Georges Perinal and Osmond Borradaile, The Four Feathers is a thrilling, thunderous epic.

Comments about this product:

This is one of many superb classic movies introduced to me by Robert Osborne, Ben Mankiewicz and others on Turner Classic Movies ever since my cable company began carrying TCM quite a number of years ago. The first time I saw The Four Feathers I was mesmerized by the production as a whole. Each time I had the opportunity to watch it again I did so and began to observe the individual performances, the authentic-looking sets and costumes, the parallelism to actual history and the haunting but fitting musical score.
