Since Young Winston attempts to be a kind of vest-pocket spectacle, there are also a couple of the battles in which he fought (a set-to in the Sudan, a Boer skirmish). Attenborough stages them with all the fury of a grade school recess.
Both a brilliant artistic achievement and a fascinating, highly enjoyable film -- a combination not always obtained.
A frightfully Boering biopic chronicling the adventures of 2nd Lt Winston Churchill.
Robert Shaw and Anne Bancroft, as Lord and Lady Randolph Churchill, are such interesting actors that they could have wrecked the film had it been better: you wish it were about them, not him.
It is dignified, occasionally exciting, filled with lots of walk-ons so eminent British actors can play eminent British statesmen, and more or less faithful to the facts. But it's nothing more than that.
John Mills, Edward Woodward, Patrick Magee, Robert Hardy, Anthony, Hopkins and a string of well-known names in small parts keep the standard of acting agreeably high.
Ward is convincing as Churchill, and the other performances, particularly that of Shaw, are of a high order.
Richard (Gandhi) Attenborough made his feature directorial debut with this mildly interesting episodic chronicle of the young Winston Churchill, played by three actors
It's a betrayal of the sharp principles of Oh! What a Lovely War.
