The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp, Blu-ray BluRay

Blu-ray

Description

In this Powell/Pressburger production set in World War Two Britain, stuffy ex-soldier Clive Candy (Roger Livesey) recalls his career which began as a dashing officer in the Boer War.

As a young man he lost the woman he loved (Deborah Kerr, who plays three roles) to a Prussian officer (Anton Walbrook), whom he fought in a duel only to become lifelong friends with.

Candy cannot help but feel that his notions of honour and chivalry are out of place in modern warfare.

The film's title comes from 'Evening Standard' cartoonist David Low's satirical comic creation, Colonel Blimp.
