Sir John Mills redux

Mark Steyn has his own obituary up now for the late Sir John Mills, and he mentions one or two films that I had never heard of before, but which I will have to try to see now, such as Tunes of Glory (1960), which I see has been available as a Criterion DVD for just over a year now. (That’s Sir Alec Guinness, not Sir John Mills, on the cover, though.)

    You’ve never seen Tunes of Glory, Peter? Shame! It used to be on TVO in Ontario on a regular basis, and is a nice study of character, swagger and conflict, all in the setting of a military regiment.
