Movie Description:
Regimental Sergeant Major Lauderdale (Sir Richard Attenborough) is a by-the-book, strict disciplinarian, who seems like an anachronism in a sleepy peacetime African outpost of the modern British commonwealth. Ridiculed behind his back by his subordinate N.C.O.s, he must play host to a liberal women M.P. making a tour of the base. However, when an ambitious African officer, who happens to be a protegè of the M.P., initiates a coup d'etat against Captain Abraham (Earl Cameron), the lawful African commandant, the resourceful Sergeant Major uses all of his military training to save his men from a certain firing squad. —Gabe Taverney ([email protected])

A Change of System

Although this film can be enjoyed as a an old-fashioned adventure of empire in the tradition of 'Lives of a Bengal Lancer' (a sense heightened by John Addison's percussion-heavy score), the 1962 novel by Roger Holles was set in the present day, and the trauma suffered by the British both at home and abroad as the Wind of Change swept Africa a very contemporary one.

Even as he was accepting his BAFTA for his incisive performance here as as a stiff-necked representative of the old empire, Richard Attenbrough had already embarked on his twenty year mission to raise money for a film about Mahatma Gandhi.

Ramrod straight against an open door of a crumbling colony

A British military drama. The story is set in an overseas colonial military outpost, seemingly East Africa, during the last days of the British Empire. As Regimental Sergeant Major Lauderdale, a martinet of the outpost, Richard Attenborough gave a BAFTA award winning performance, a stunningly convincing central performance. He plays a man whose career is his reason for being. The coup d'état that threatens his position brings out the best and worst in a military man, reasoning that his deeply entrenched values and beliefs are no longer valid.

Mutiny? It's like the Loch Ness Monster. Heard of it but never actually ran across it!

Wow, a 19-year-old Mia Farrow in her first credited role.

But, eye-candy aside, the real stars are Richard Attenborough (Gandhi, Jurassic Park) as the Regimental Sergeant Major, and Flora Robson as MP Barker-Wise.

Upheaval in Africa as a newly independent country decides to change leadership, provides a backdrop for conflict between the RSM and the mutinous Lieutenant (Errol John) who supports the new government.

The stiff discipline of the British Army is on full display as the RSM tries to protect his charges.

The acting by all was excellent, and the story was both dramatic and funny at times.
