  • Khartoum (1966)

    One of the most enjoyable epics of the time.

    Ralph Richardson's Gladstone alone makes the film worth seeing. Olivier is well over the top, but after all so was the Mhahdi. I don't know how Charlton Heston would seem to a British audience, but to me it was an ideal match of actor with a role, based on temperament and character. And there is Richard Johnson as well.

    The battle scenes are very well done. And a superb score.

    What more can one want from a historical action film?

    It's superbly done - one of my favourites.
