Discovered this one on TCM. GREAT FILM!
One of the best action movies ever!
A regiment of Scotties, the Kyber Pass, treachery, betrayal, ambuscades,loads of bagpipes and a stiff upper lip. It doesn't get any better than this! I saw this movie when I was 9 years old and living in Brooklyn. I ran into the kitchen grabbed my mother's arm and said, "I WANT TO BE A DRUMMER BOY!" After watching this movie who wouldn't!
The reason for movies
I just viwed 'Drums' for the first time thanks to TCM, and I loved every minute of it! The fellow who wrote that article that accompanies the listing for the film should take a flying leap...'Drums' rules!
Some things never change!
- GC Hagar
I remember seeing a portion of this movie as a boy. The scene of the treacherous dinner party sticks in my mind as I am also a piper and once in a while we must give recognition to drummers that they are of some value! I say some things never change because here we are in 2009 having spent seven years fighting in Afghanistan and the issues at stake are little diffferent now than in pre-WW II "India". Another constant: the support of our wives without whose dedication to family, we would not be able to campaign so effectively, so often, so far from home. An excellent movie and as timely now as it was when it was made. Bravo, TCM!
glorious cinema fantasy for the ages
it has it all, adventure, drama, music, intrique, direction, location location location in the middle ages of film making which only the korda brothers made possible. on the scale of the best of the best--the 4 feathers.
Alexander Korda's First Technicolor Feature
- M.J. Chase
This 1938 film deserves a Criterion DVD release at the earliest opportunity. This was London Films'(Korda Brothers) first Technicolor feature, a stirring Empire epic. British stage favorite Roger Livesey was cast to play the lead. Livesey is most fondly remembered for his screen roles in the 1940-era films of Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger: "The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp", "I Know Where I'm Going", and "A Matter of Life and Death". A Criterion DVD release of "Drums" would add depth to Livesey's hitherto-overlooked filmography.
This Film ought to be on DVD
- Jeffrey Kenison
This movie should be on DVD sooner rather than later.
