This spectacular Technicolor epic, 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 London Films.

Some of the finest old school adventure moviemaking is found in THE FOUR FEATHERS. After an officer resigns his post, accusations of cowardice prompt him to embark on a truly insane adventure through Egypt. It's the most elaborate and crazy someone has ever said "I'm no coward" to his friends.
Politically incorrect and everything, this is still one of the most exciting and beautifully made adventures ever filmed. Ralph Richardson is magnificent. John Clements is superb. Zoltan Korda ("The Macomber Affair") should be taken more seriously.
The Brothers Korda present a sweeping, classical desert war adventure about the imperialist re-taking of Khartoum in the late 19th century. Second only to "Lawrence of Arabia" as the greatest British war film of all time.
