I've always thought that was a better film than it was given credit for, apart from Burt Lancaster, who appeared to think he was in a comedy (there couldn't really be any other reason for that accent could there?)

I know,i could never understand why they couldn't get someone else play the part,he just didn't fit in the film because everybody knew he was American....

I was going to post the charge from 'The Charge of the Light Brigade' but found this,it's from the film but with Tennyson's poem....

It always helps a film to have a big name in the cast, good for the box office, and never mind the suitability of the actor concerned.  I suppose I shouldn't blame Lancaster, it was just a job for him and I don't suppose he did any research for the part.  Colonel Durnford, born in Ireland, of course he's going to sound like Paddy McGinty, why wouldn't he?   Still, everyone else did a good job.

The irony of an Irishman playing Cromwell....

 

Not a film I’ve seen but I’ll check it out.

This is another good film Trevor,although not quite as good as Cromwell (To Kill A King)...

Indeed, I much prefer it to the Olivier version, that was very theatrical, the Branagh version was much more realistic, Agincourt wasn't fought on a bright sunny day!  Branagh's bedraggled army trudging through the mud was much closer to what really happened.  Probably the best version (so far!).

You’re adding to my queue of films to see. The ‘stash’ resembles my plastic backlog!

Good choices, but no Hovis? Luton Airport? Martini? Black Magic? No Ologies? Prudential?
