The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp (#45)

For Screen and Country

Oct 4 2021 • 1 hr 59 mins

What better way to follow up last week's raunchy comedy than with an epic profile of a complicated soldier in the Powell & Pressburger classic The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp. Does this movie take shots at the British army through the title character's unwavering committment to tradition and morality? How dangerous was it to talk about Germany's justified anger in 1943? Was this secretly a progressive film for women? And none of you will be shocked when you find out the idenity of the man being 'mocked' during this whole ordeal! Plus - more.   The guys also draw next week's movie out of a hat! What will it be? Join us, won't you? Questions? Comments? Suggestions?
