Storyline

Each year, with almost no exceptions, the British Sovereign (King or, as presently, reigning Queen) celebrates His/Her 'official birthday' (which is held on a chosen Saturday in Spring, regardless of H.M.'s actual birthday) by attending arguably the most elaborate annual display of military parade skill. Each year one of the infantry regiments of the Royal Guards (the Grenadeers, Coldstream Guards, Scotch Guards, Welsh Guards and Irish Guards) gets its turn to star its 'colours' (regimental flag) in an elaborate ceremonial on the parade ground near the London Cenotaph, which also involves the mounted Horse Guards and the arrival from and return to Buckingham Palace in coaches of most of the royal family, except for the Royal Colonels who participate on horse-back themselves.

A Documentary Short of the 1956 Ceremony
13 January 2009 | by See all my reviews

Director: RICHARD WARREN. Photographed in Technicolor by Leslie Dear, Donald Long, and others. Film editor: Bill Freeman. Music: John Hollingsworth. Commentary: Deryck Guyler. Sound recording: Ken Cameron. Producer: Ralph May.

An Anvil Films Production for C.O.I., released in the U.K. through Anglo-Amalgamated: February 1957. 749 feet. 8 minutes.

SYNOPSIS: A pictorial record of the trooping the colour ceremony on Horse Guards Parade, London, in June 1956. The ceremony celebrates the Queen's official birthday.

COMMENT: Directed with astounding technical virtuosity, the normally humdrum royal documentary is here brilliantly turned on its head, the ceremony captured with a vigour and vibrancy that television coverage of similar events has never attempted. Superb photography and high fidelity sound recording make this little item one to treasure in the permanent collection.
