The Four Feathers (1939)

A British war film directed by Zoltan Korda.
A British soldier assigned to India resigns, but feels like a coward for doing so. His army buddies send him white feathers to signify this "coward status" and he sets out to prove them wrong.
This was not so great. The plot barely held my attention. The three main characters were developed fully though. We've already been over how I like oversaturated technicolor video and the audio was similar to The Drum (1938). It was cranked to distortion levels and again ended in blown-out gunfire. There was a running joke with an old man telling a repeated story at the dinner table and using food to represent people (picture). Overall, not so hot. I rate this poor. You might not want to watch it.
