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.)
