A movie about the First World War based on a stage musical of the same name, portraying the "Game of War" and focusing mainly on the members of the Smith family who go off to war. Much of the action in the movie revolves around the words of the marching songs of the soldiers, and many scenes portray some of the more famous (and infamous) incidents of the war, including the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand, the Christmas meeting between British and German soldiers in no-man's-land, and the wiping out by their own side of a force of Irish soldiers newly arrived at the front, after successfully capturing a ridge that had been contested for some time.

The bayonets of the Band of the Irish Guards as they parade down the Brighton promenade appear to be for the L1A1 self loading rifle, first issued 1957 and still issued as standard by the time of the film, rather than the correct 1907 pattern bayonet for the Lee-Enfield No1 mkIII rifle (characterised by its longer blade length of 17" as opposed to the 8" of the L1A1's bayonet).

It was Christmas Day in the harem, the eunuchs were standing 'round, And hundreds of beautiful women were stretched out on the ground, Along ...

I saw this movie once, thirty years ago, and it still has the power to choke me inside.
This is the first film I look for on any movie site I go to. Every other movie I just browse for.
Along with the original "All Quiet on the Western Front", I find it one of the most powerful war movies ever. All the other movies have actors that you know didn't die - no matter how realistic the scenes.
This movie truly affected me at the time.
I would drive a long way to purchase, or see this movie. Why has this movie never been released when so many worse have been? Other movies might be considered entertainment, but not this one.
