Description
In a recently liberated colonial African country, a Regimental Sergeant (Richard Attenborough) is caught between maintaining order and fighting off an African officer whose group opposes the new British-approved government. Mia Farrow made her debut as a United Nations secretary in this 1964 release, while Flora Robson portrays a visiting left-wing member of Parliament. Extras include a trailer and commentary by cast member John Leyton.

"The troupe that fashioned this adventure has endowed it with nuances of character and a coolly dispassionate appraisal of Africa in a state of flux that set it a cut above the brave, dashing British colonial school of derring-do."NYTimes

"Soldiering and politics don't mix, according to this well-developed screenplay which dissects with a piercing personal touch the strict disciplinary attitudes that govern a true British soldier and make him retain his own individual pride in the face of political forces unappreciative of his principles.... Attenborough is tough, crisp and staunch as the sergeant, playing with as much starch as the character implies. Errol John has intense qualities of fanaticism as the lieutenant who seizes the government."Variety
