Format: DVDVerified Purchase
Ordered a film by mistake that was not in English and was not able to be viewed in the U.S.A. Returned the film and to date, have not been refunded. After a phone call or two to Amazon, I received a "merchandise credit" refund.

A laudatory, and long, biopic about the young Winston Churchill from childhood trough his years as a war correspondent in Africa during the Boer War and the rebellion in the Sudan, to his first election to Parliament. Director Richard Attenborough's attention to correct historical detail is deserving of kudos, for it can be so easy to fudge everything in favor of some sort of superhero tale. Robert Shaw and Anne Bancroft as perfect as Winston's father, Lord Randolph and his American mother, Jennie. And Simon Ward, as the older Winston, is marvelous. A side note on Attenborough: while any other director would simply have had Winston pack an ordinary revolver, Attenborough goes to the trouble to ensure that Winston packs the Mauser C96, a pistol Churchill wrote of in his memoirs quite fondly, as it saved his life on more than one occasion. This movie is testament to the fact that one can tell the facts correctly and still be most entertaining.

This movie belongs in every serious DVD collection, and should be enjoyed by every lover of great films, but, ironically, it is only available in Germany, not in England or America. The German DVD requires an all region DVD player, but any lover of film will have one of those -- how else to watch The African Queen, The Magnificent Ambersons, Robert Mitchum in Farewell My Lovely or Lawrence Olivier in Othello. The German DVD is in English, and uncut. But why is this fine and very entertaining movie not available in the US?
