Tunes of Glory 1960
One of the all-time great British films, Tunes of Glory (1960) is also the best directed by Ronald Neame, whose remarkable career spans nearly the entire history of British cinema.

The film is set at an unnamed Highland regiment, where its gregarious, popular acting commander, Major Jock Sinclair (Alec Guinness) is replaced with a martinet, a humorless teetotaler, Lt. Colonel Barrow (John Mills). The Oxford-educated Barrow, who places discipline ahead of tradition, clashes with his officers almost at once. Sinclair, lacking a formal education, earned his commission the hard way, and the men of the battalion see him as one of their own.

Based on the novel by James Kennaway and featuring flawless performances by Guinness and Mills, Tunes of Glory uses the rigid stratification of military life to comment on the institutional contradictions and class hierarchies of English society, making for an unexpectedly moving drama.
