Tunes of Glory (1960) Poster

Trivia

The name of the Highland regiment portrayed is never mentioned, although the screenwriter served in the Gordon Highlanders. However, the same regimental tartan (designed for this film) and bonnet badges were worn by the Highland regiment in _Carry On Up the Khyber (1968)_, and so the regiment in "Tunes of Glory" may well be the "3rd Foot & Mouth."

In one of the venomous exchanges between the Scots pipe-major (Duncan Macrae) and the English RSM (Percy Herbert), the former advises the latter to go and watch his television set, adding that "Muffin the Mule" is on at four o'clock". This refers to a famous British children's program of the early 1950s, which was presented by Annette Mills - the sister of John Mills, who plays the colonel of the regiment in this film.
