Battle of wits between two superstars, Alec Guinnes and John Mills, in the Neame's best filmReviewed byma-cortesVote: 8/10

This memorable drama deals about a confronting among two veterans army officers, developing an impressive clash of wits enhanced by a marvelous performances. Major Jock Sinclair-Alec Guinness- is undisciplined , drunk and fun loving person, he fought in Montecassino and Berlin, moving throughout the ranks of the British military and respected by Officers remainder. His contender the senior commanding officer Colonel Basil Barrow-John Mills- is serious, disciplined and educated in Oxford and Eton, though he was prisoned. He has returned as new regiment chief and replacing Major Jock. Colonel Sinclair is disillusioned but is substituted by a British martinet and undergoes a psychological harassing with sad results.

Alec Guinness and John Mills were never better than in this title. Both acting from deep within and giving the playing of their lifetime.They confront each other to brink of madness, well reflected on outstanding interpretation. Secondary cast is frankly extraordinary, Dennis Price as Commandant Charles,Officer Allan Cuthbertson , Sergeant Percy Herbert,Corporal John Fraser,2aLieutenant PeterMcEnery, Kay Walsh as the girlfriend and Susannah York film debut as the daughter.Special mention to Gordon Jackson as an upright officer.Cinematography is shot in Shepperton studios by Arthur Ibbetson and emotive musical score plenty of Scottish bagpipes sounds by Malcolm Arnold. Ronald Neame's smoothly persuasive direction attracted reception by the public. Neame was one of Britain's best cameraman in the 1930s and 40s, working for David Lean, later he turned to direction in 1947 with 'Take my life'. His biggest hit was undoubtedly 'The Poseidon adventure' and 'Odessa file' . Ronald Neame and Alec Guinness worked successfully together in 'The card' and 'The hours's mouth'. Rating: Splendid and excellent, above average.

Tunes was indeed GloriousReviewed bymullin-1Vote: 10/10

Such a fitting picture was Tunes of Glory, that Sir Alec Guinness himself declared it in his autobiography one of his favorite roles. The mood of the film was perfectly captured by a cast of outstanding British character actors, led most ably by Gordon Jackson, in the world of post wartime Britain. The barricks/castle backdrop is itself a character in the film. However, its indeed an actor's film. Guinness's soliloquy at the end of the movie is worth the "price of admission" and should be mandatory for any would-be actor to view prior to entering the trade. Guinness is matched scene for scene with John Mills portrayal of Col Barrows. Movies such as this and Carol Reed's "The Third Man" with Orson Wells was the backbone of two decades of outstanding British cinema. This movie joined an impressive list of movies to be ignored by Academy of Motion Pictures and the Oscar. If nothing else the soundtrack is a bagpipe lover's dream. In a personal aside (chance for name dropping) I had the opportunity to met Gregory Peck once, and he in a brief moment he was asked about great performances in great roles, and without hesitation chose Guinness's Colonel Sinclair as one of his top three comtemporary performances (first of course was his Attackus Finch in "To Kill A Mockingbird". High praise indeed.

The art of actingReviewed bycoop-16Vote: 10/10

I finally had the chance to see this film in its entirety on Bravo a few days ago. Ronald Neame was not a director of the first rank, and he probably wasnt even a director of the second, but this is NOT a directors picture. It is a picture carried by superb acting and a brilliant script.I am now convinced that Guinness was one of the greatest screen actors that ever lived-if not the greatest.. This performance surpasses even his Colonel Nicholson in Bridge on the River Kwai, or his magnificent performances in the Ealing comedies. His boorish, arrogant, but oddly touching and vulnerable Jock Sinclair is a full length portrait worthy of Rembrandt-or Dostoevsky.John Mills, as the "by the book " colonel, whose aloof exterior hides enormous psychic scars, is almost equally good.Dennis Price, as a friend who turns his back on Sinclair, and the superb Gordon Jackson ( he was a great actor long, long before Upstairs Downstairs)as a restrained, sensitive officer who tries ineffectually to help both antagonists, are almost equally good. All of the other performances are very fine.The films beautifully written, sometimes funny, usually achingly sad script is a profound meditation on honor, tradition, repression and class conflict. Guinnesses soliloquy at the end is one of the most heart-breaking moments in all of film.
