In this satirical account of wartime during the ill-fated charge of British troops at Balaclava in the Crimean War, loyal soldiers blindly followed orders which were led to certain death. Snobbish aristocrats and ineffectual politicos combine with pompous blue-bloods to make decisions affecting 600 men thousands of miles away.
One of my all time favorite movies, truly. They got the names right, and I think it is a good depiction of the High Victorian Era, and its funny at times too!
Charge of the Light Brigade
worst movie I ever saw…..
Should be required of Congress
Not the swashbuckling Errol Flynn kind of movie. This is about the stupidity, arrogance, and incompetence of leaders who get nations into useless wars. Oh, by the way, is something happening in Crimea today? Leaders of Western nations should be required to watch this movie to see the last time the West blundered its way into Crimea and got a lot of people killed for nothing.
