Audience Reviews for The Four Feathers


Good TV version of the classic is hampered by the utter miscasting of Bridges in the lead. Never the strongest of leading men he sticks out like a sore thumb in this most English of stories completely surrounded by a cast of British actors who all seem at ease with the material. Jane, always at home in period costumes, is full of youthful promise and delicate beauty as the conflicted Ethne.
