This film has been made and remade 7 times this is the fourth remake and by far the best. The 3 previous 2 had been silent movies thats didnt do very well and in 1929 another version was made but the 1939 version is the fim that stands out not only in 30's cinema but in cinema today. starring John Clements, Ralph Richardson and June Duprez. Set in the 1880s during the reign of Queen Victoria, it tells the story of a man accused of cowardice. It would be best to watch 1966 film called Khartoum starring Charlton Heston as Genral Gordan as the four feathers comes straight after the events in Khartoum. This is an example of how great technicolor can be when it first came out still realy good colour to this day. The Picture quality of the film i would give it 4 out 5 probably the best print out there. Some great battle scenes towards the end a strong story. A must for any cinema lover or fan of brittish cinema at its best.
