Charge Of The Light Brigade (DVD)
Tony Richardson directs this 1960s British war drama starring Trevor Howard, Vanessa Redgrave and John Gielgud.
Trevor Howard, John Gielgud, Vanessa Redgrave and David Hemmings star in this powerful and biting account of one of the most famous blunders in military history.
Tony Richardson creates a sweeping panorama of mid-Victorian England in all its complacency and callousness, and a biting screenplay by Charles Wood brings wit as well as anger to dramatising the gulf between the leaders and the led.
Bengal Lancer Captain Louis Nolan is posted to the Crimea where Lord Cardigan leads the Light Brigade in the ill-fated Balaclava charge orchestrated by the overzealous Lord Raglan.
