I thoroughly enjoyed this film. But then again, any movie boasting the talents of both Errol Flynn AND David Niven is always going to be a treat.
My favourite part of Charge of the Light Brigade is at the ball in Calcutta, every man in the place is trying to avoid the interfering old bint (can't remember her name). The looks on their faces every time she approaches is priceless.
It doesn't matter that it's full of nonsense, Charge of the Light Brigade is an entertaining film that takes you back in time to the genteel goings-on of colonial times.
