Brilliantly acted drama,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tunes of Glory [DVD]  (DVD)
Trouble at Stirling Castle when new Regiment commander (John Mills) arrives to take command and clashes with Jock Sinclair (Alec Guiness) All superbly filmed and directed by Ronald Neame, incidentally no location filming at either Stirling or Edinburgh apart from an exterior shot of Stirling Castle briefly at the beginning and end of the film, otherwise all filmed at the backlot at Sheperton and very convincing it is too. The acting is nothing short of brilliant and the story gripping, modern filmakers please take note of how good script and performances are everything! The transfer to DVD is pretty good from existing material. There is a thin faint dark bar that appears for 8 minutes as has been mentioned in other reviews, I have heard this is damage to the original neg and difficult to put right, the film is nearly 50 years old so I am not going to let that small glitch detract from my enjoyment of the film.
