Richard Attenborough directs this biopic telling the story of Winston Churchill's early years. Covering the young Churchill's childhood, his time as a war correspondent in India, and his military experience in the Boer War, the film culminates with the future Prime Minister's first speech in the House of Commons. The all-star cast features Simon Ward as Churchill, Anne Bancroft and Robert Shaw as his parents, and Anthony Hopkins as David Lloyd George.

History that wears its learning jauntily.
Regrettably, on the recommendation of Mr John L. "Bird-Brain" I ordered the Der Junge Lowe, Special Edition version of Young Winston, relishing the prospect of viewing the seminal and moving dream sequence finale (which, I recalled from my youth, was so evocatively accompanied by Sir Edward Elgar's Nimrod) where an elderly Churchill, snoozing in the dim autumn light of his study, and his life, is gently quizzed by his late father Randolph on what life's path he had subsequently embarked. After answering that he had left the Army without attaining high rank, his father, with graceful but visible disppointment, wishes him well, leaving Churchill to return to his dreams, quietly chuckling at the absence of any questions that would have revealed his towering exploits in becoming Britain's most eminent Prime Minister and statesman.
I cannot fathom the thought processes by which any film distributor would feel the need to cut this scene from the original. Sheer lunacy.
By the way... thanks John ! Hope you're enjoying the "dream-scene less" version too!
