Critics reviews

One look at the directing credits and you can see why this all-star historical epic—a Best Picture nominee that year, losing to fellow epic Lawrence of Arabia—rarely gets mentioned nowadays. But while I was steeled for something stodgy and bloated and incoherent, the film turns out to be almost avant-garde by the standards of its era, to the point where only patriotism could have prevented its wholesale rejection by the public.
