About the Movie

This Technicolor spectacular, directed by Zoltán Korda, is considered the finest of the many adaptations of A. E. W. Mason’s classic 1902 adventure novel about the British empire’s exploits in Africa, and a crowning achievement of Alexander Korda’s legendary production company, London Films. Set at the end of the nineteenth century, The Four Feathers follows the travails of a young officer (John Clements) accused of cowardice after he resigns his post on the eve of a major deployment to Khartoum; he must then fight to redeem himself in the eyes of his fellow officers (including Ralph Richardson) and fiancée (June Duprez). Featuring music by Miklós Rózsa and Oscar-nominated cinematography by Georges Périnal and Osmond Borradaile, The Four Feathers is a thrilling, thunderous epic.

Customer Reviews

An elegant movie from a more civilized age, so to speak.

From an era when special effects were achieved by facial expression, posture and inflection of the voice; a lost art called "acting." Ok, I'm too opinionated to write a fair review, but it seems to me this has more subtlety in it than any other version. Both the foolhardy courage of Victorian militarism and the timerity of later times are critiqued. Real courage is more rational than both, and motivated by love. Notice that the final feather is redeemed by standing up to dad.
