"...BLIMP marries ambition, wit and heart to fine performances from Anton Walbrook, Deborah Kerr and the truly fantastic Roger Livesey..."

Product Description:

Colonel Blimp, an old, befuddled British military officer, reminisces about his past glories in this witty war satire. Deborah Kerr plays three different women in the Colonel's long, but not particularly well-spent life. A.K.A. "Colonel Blimp."

Product Description:

Famous British cartoon character Colonel Blimp was made flesh and blood in Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger's complex, humane portrait of a well-mannered soldier, whom the film follows through the first half of the twentieth century. Made during wartime, The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp ignited controversy: Winston Churchill himself denounced its 'sympathetic' view of a German soldier. Today it is considered one of the filmmakers' greatest achievements.

Plot Synopsis:

Drama about the life of Clive Candy, an English soldier who served in three wars (Boer, World War I, World War II), and had relationships with three women along the way (each played by Deborah Kerr). Despite Candy's tours-of-duty, he harbors no ill will towards the Germans, instead he believes they have been the pawns of military leaders.
