Description by

Richard Attenborough's examination of the early life of Winston Churchill -- up until his early days at Parliament, before his marriage - is a fascinating look at the formative years of one of the greatest politicians and most influential world leaders in recent history. Played by Simon Ward, young Churchill is ambitious and over-eager, with a tendency toward boastful over-exaggeration and opportunism, all of which served him well in overturning the low expectations of his father. The film flashes back through three main periods of Churchill's life narrated by the older, knowing Churchill. In boyhood and adolescence, Churchill's self-consumed parents, Lord Randolph (Robert Shaw) and American-born Lady Jennie (Anne Bancroft), are too busy with their own lives in Parliament and social engagements to see him off to boarding school, a task fulfilled by a beloved nanny. The adventure of Churchill's years as a war correspondent and soldier is enthusiastically depicted. Newly remastered.
