      Steve D Feels longer than it is because of its paper thin characters. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 07/12/23 Full Review j f Tremendous! Douglas-Lancaster duo expose pathetic, english crown-polishers for the pieces of sh*t they truly are. Four more years! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 07/08/23 Full Review GAUDEAMUS I IT HELPS TO BE COLLEGE EDUCATED TO ENJOY THIS GREAT UNSUNG MASTERPIECE,,,,THOUGH ALL MIL VETS SHOULD UNDERSTAND THE SUBTEXT Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member An almost perfect realization of Shaw's satirical play. Its main flaw is that it's far too short for the wealth of material that was available from the original play. The actors are cast brilliantly, especially Laurence Olivier as General Bourgoyne, a performance overflowing with wit. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review s r Another lost flixster rating. I wanted to like this movie, but it was so poorly presented and directed that I can't. It's a shame, since it had potential. Saw it on TCM.
