One of those films... which are of little interest cinematically and out of fashion thematically (no sex, no violence, no low life) and yet manage to be very good entertainment. Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- Alec Guinness and John Mills prove to be able adversaries in this drama (with sizable dollops of humor) set amidst the officers of a Scottish peacetime battalion. Full Review

Rating: 7/10 -- A marvelous indictment of institutional machismo and performative masculinity that saw two of England's best actors...play against type and deliver two of their finest performances. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- Mills e Guinness protagonizam um belo duelo de interpretações, mas o filme se prejudica um pouco em seu terceiro ato, já que a resolução parece melodramática e artificial.

Rating: 3/5 -- Every time you think you have a firm understanding of a character's personality, something totally logical occurs that completely changes that assessment.

Rating: B- -- It reverts to sentimentality and never manages to get to anything significant. Full Review

The persistent and lovely sound of bagpipes is almost enough to drown out the sound of men's inner demons clawing at each other's psyches. Full Review

Product Description:

In Ronald Neame's Tunes of Glory, the incomparable Alec Guinness plays Jock Sinclair—a whiskey-drinking, up-by-the-bootstraps commanding officer of a peacetime Scottish battalion. A lifetime military man, Sinclair expects respect and loyalty from his men. But when Basil Barrow (John Mills)—an educated, by-the-book scion of a military family—enters the scene as Sinclair's replacement, the two men engage in a fierce struggle for control of both the battalion and the hearts and minds of its men. Based on the novel by James Kennaway and featuring flawless performances by Guinness and Mills, Tunes of Glory uses the rigid stratification of military life to comment on the institutional contradictions and class hierarchies of English society, making for an unexpectedly moving drama. DVD SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES • New 4K digital restoration • Interview from 2003 with director Ronald Neame • Audio interview from 2002 with actor John Mills • Television interview from 1973 with actor Alec Guinness • Trailer • PLUS: An essay by film scholar Robert Murphy
