Product Description

The Life & Death of Colonel Blimp' DVD, R. Livesey (1943), New & Sealed

Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger's drama criticizing a British Army out of touch with the new realities of World War II was controversial when released, with the British government denying its cooperation to the filmmakers and with Powell and Pressberger accused in some quarters of being pro-German. The story follows two British soldiers through forty years of warfare. The framing story follows a Home Guard exercise in which Spud Wilson (James Mckechnie) captures Clive Wynne Candy (Roger Livesey) in a Turkish bath, six hours before the exercise is supposed to begin. Candy insists that Wilson is not playing by the rules, but Wilson argues that rules should not be followed in modern warfare. As Candy dresses down Wilson, his tale is told is flashback. In 1902, during the Boer war, Candy travels to Berlin where he confronts a German propagandist, Theo Kretschmar-Schuldorff (Anton Walbrook) and challenges him to a duel. As they recuperate from the wounds incurred in the duel, the two become friends. Candy's traveling companion, Edith Hunter (Deborah Kerr) then tells him that she and Theo plan to marry. It is only then that Candy realizes he's in love with Edith. During World War I, Candy adheres to the gentlemanly fighting that he carried on during his Boer War campaigns and he marries Barbara (Deborah Kerr), a nurse who bears a strong resemblance to Edith.
