Taras Boulba keeps on getting worse.
2 July 2004 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Alex Korda didn't put his name on his English re-working of Granowski's French film of the Russian classic.

The French one is pretty creaky though it does have the great shot of the Mongol hoards filling the sky line and keeping coming till they engulf the camera - interesting to see the way they use it in this one. The English version has the great Harry Baur again, probably not using his own voice (he was dubbed by Alan Jeayes in his other English language film MOSCOW NIGHTS - poor guy)and Jean Pierre Aumont in his tin suit is clearly visible before we cut to the closer angles where the character is played by the awful Anthony Bushell.

This one has the prototype's lack of conviction increased by poor matching and a less lustrous cast. It does have curiosity value and the novelty of being one of the last of the European multiple versions starting nearly a decade before.
