The Night of the Generals (1967) Blu Ray (Eureka!)

While somewhat flawed, this big-budget, star-studded tale of World War II intrigue is more interesting than its reputation suggests. It stars Peter O’Toole, Omar Sharif, Tom Courtenay, Donald Pleasance, Charles Gray and Christopher Plummer.

Khartoum (1966) starring Charlton Heston Blu Ray & DVD (Eureka!)

This lavish historical epic emphasises Ultra Panavision 70 mm landscape shots over any truly deep exploration into its colonial themes. While Heston is outstanding as Major General Charles Gordon and Richard Johnson gives solid support, Laurence Olivier is miscast as an Arab in brown-face makeup.
