The Charge Of The Light Brigade DVD


The Charge of the Light Brigade was an infamous battle in the Crimean War considered one of the greatest military blunders in history and immortalized in the poem by Alfred Lord Tennyson. The ill-conceived expedition to the Crimea was marked by an incredible lack of strategy and planning inadequate weapons camouflage food health care and communications. In the final battle all the soldiers had to protect them was their courage and blind faith. As Tennyson put it: Ours is not to question why/Ours is but to do and die. The film is a classic dissection of the pointlessness of war and the horrors inflicted on the common man who goes to fight in the name of his country. Directed by Tony Richardson and starring Trevor Howard Vanessa Redgrave (Atonement Howards End) and John Gielgud (Murder on the Orient Express Arthur The Charge of the Light Brigade was nominated for 6 BAFTAs.

A Bengal Lancer and his brother are posted to the Crimea where an over zealous army officer starts the Balaclava charge to even an old score with an enemy on the other side. Tony Richardson's historical epic (based on the poem by Alfred Lord Tennyson about Britain's role in the Crimean War) has an undeniable 60s look and feel and features several animation sequences by Richard Williams.
