The Four Feathers
Director: Merian C. Cooper, Lothar Mendes,
Run Time: 0 minutes, Certificate: ,
The second screen version of the tale of cowardice and subsequent heroism in the Sudan is a quirk of cinema history. In production as "talkies" arrived, it has subtitled speeches with background sound effects. Thank goodness that Fay Wray and Richard Arlen are not affected by the dubbing that ruined other late 20's films.
Average score 6.64
