Khartoum 1966
1884. The Mahdi, a self-ordained leader of a new Jihad that he hopes will sweep the Mohammedan world (Laurence Olivier), threatens the Sudan and Egypt, vital centers of influence for the British Empire. Egypt has already lost an army trying to subdue him, and Prime Minister Gladstone (Ralph Richardson) has no intention of miring his government in another failure in Africa. He sends General Charles 'Chinese' Gordon, hero of the opium wars (Charlton Heston). Gordon brought peace and an end to the slave trade in the Sudan a decade before, and perhaps can turn the tide now. If he succeeds, then the British Empire will be credited with a diplomatic win. If he fails, then Gordon (whom the Prime Minister dislikes on a personal level) will be the one to take the blame. Will Gordon find solution to this challenging diplomatic dilemma?
