Crazy Credits

The beginning of the closing credits features a sepia-toned still photograph of a mustachioed British Army officer in uniform and a caption that reads:

L.F. Roach Major 20th Indian Light Cavalry Killed in action -- Ratjaphur --1878

The photograph fades into a cast photo over which the closing credits roll. There is no indication as whether or not the person pictured was actually Major Roach. See more »

Pompous asses on display ....................
19 August 2011 | by merklekranzSee all my reviews

Despite a high power cast that includes Michael York, Stacy Keach, Richard Atenborough, and Christopher Plummer, "Conduct Unbecoming" never really rises above mediocrity. All decisions seem to be governed by a false sense of honor and everyone is so pompous, there are few likable characters. The story is totally unbelievable, losing credibility with each scene. The conclusion especially comes out of nowhere. Despite the widescreen treatment, most scenes are claustrophobic interior shots, with men in red uniforms sitting around tables. There really is little to like here, other than the stellar cast, which is badly wasted because of the weak script. - MERK
