Movie Info

Two excellent actors shine in powerful roles in this drama by Ronald Neame that pits one Scottish army colonel against another. Alec Guinness is Lt. Col. Jock Sinclair, a man who temporarily takes over command of a regiment until his replacement, Col. Basil Barrow (John Mills) arrives. Sinclair comes from the lower echelons of the social order but was at least able to work himself up the echelons in the military hierarchy. He is fairly well-liked though still a little rough around the edges for

It reverts to sentimentality and never manages to get to anything significant.

Every time you think you have a firm understanding of a character's personality, something totally logical occurs that completely changes that assessment.

Mills e Guinness protagonizam um belo duelo de interpretações, mas o filme se prejudica um pouco em seu terceiro ato, já que a resolução parece melodramática e artificial.

Audience Reviews for Tunes of Glory

Alec Guinness eats scenery left and right and John Mills seeths on the sideline as two Scottish officers clash in a bloody war of the wills. At stake is an idea: what kind of Army, and by implication, what kind of civilisation do we have? One run by thugs acting like gentlemen, or one where gentlemen act like thugs? (Decide for yourself where you fit in the scheme of things while you watch) By no means just a two man show a regiment of supporting cast hold the flanks of this excellent, if old school, production. A must see if you've an interest in things military washed clean of propagandist rhetoric.
