Scenes showing Cromwell's campaign in Ireland were cut from the final film due to the Troubles in Northern Ireland. See more »

Mr. Cromwell, you are impertient.
Such issues are beyond good manners, sir. Catholicism is more than a relgion. It ia a political power. Therefore, I am led to believe there will be no peace in Ireland until the Catholic Church is crushed.

Richard Harris is very good indeed as Oliver Cromwell. Alec Guiness is truly in his element as King Charles I providing a brilliant contrast to Harris as Crowmwell. Dorothy Tutin is superb as Queen Henrietta Maria. I also liked Timothy Dalton as Prince Rupert very much. Robert Morely is fantastic as the Earl of Manchester. The battle scenes are superb between the royalists and the parliamentary roundheads. The execution of Charles I is very well done too as are the parliamentary scenes. Why can't films still be as great as this one? The actors, script, setting and costumes all make Cromwell a magnificent film. I recommend it most highly.
