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.
