Product Description & Reviews
Two top-notch actors-Beau Bridges (The Agency, The Fabulous Baker Boys) and Jane Seymour (The Onedin Line)-imbue this high-energy British costume drama with charisma and suspense. After Lieutenant Harry Feversham abruptly resigns his military commission on the eve of England's war with Egypt, he risks losing both the love of his life and the respect of three valued comrades. His attempts to redeem himself are audacious, but are they enough? 100 min. DVD. What it lacks in grandeur, this 1978 TV version of The Four Feathers makes up for in fidelity to A.E.W. Mason's classic novel. By cannibalizing the superior 1939 production for epic shots and sequences, this modest adaptation draws attention to its meager production values, relying heavily on casting and chemistry to compensate. That it succeeds, more or less, in capturing the essence of Mason's grand adventure is largely due to the appeal of Beau Bridges and Jane Seymour in the prime of their early careers. (Bridges's film career was gaining momentum; Seymour would rise from here to the similarly romantic Somewhere in Time.) Bridges is the shamed soldier Harry Faversham, transcending cowardice by rescuing his closest friends during Britain's bloody campaign in 1870s Sudan; Seymour is his beloved back home, torn between Harry and the seemingly braver Jack (Robert Powell). TV veteran Don Sharp provides tepid direction, while screenwriter Gerald DiPego would continue his prolific career for decades to come. --Jeff Shannon
