The Four Feathers (1939)




This is such a great movie! It really captures the time period well. I had heard that they actually had real Dervishes in the cast. I really love the appearance of the gunboat at battle for Karthoum (something that was missing from the 2002 version, not to mention the Nile).

  2. I would never hear of it!

    I wonder what the opposite of a white feather would be?

  3. The worst thing about the latest version was the terribly modern sensibility to it
