Fascinating "home movies" of the Last Viceroy of India
7 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Saw this years ago on US public TV. As I recall it was broadcast in many (12+) parts and amounts to an autobiography on film of Lord "Louie" Moutbatten, Last Viceroy of India, Supreme Allied Commander of SE Asia in WWII, 1st Lord of the Admiralty, etc., who was ultimately, tragically, assassinated by an Irish Republican Army bomb.

Particularly striking in my recollection are his account, and amazing footage (shot on 16mm?), of many important moments in history; the West's failure to reciprocate Ho Chi Mhin's embrace after we jointly rousted the Japanese occupiers from Vietnam, thereby sowing the seeds of the "Indochina/Vietnam" War; the harrowing and bloody partition of India and Pakistan, and many more. All of this narrated in his droll, erudite manner. Riveting stuff.
