thanks, I am very interested, a wonderful film, and a true story to boot, right down to his sfter dinner singing in peacetime. In his shoes, I would have taken the offer of a few horses while the guards "wern't looking" and found a new pasture, but people were more principled then.....
We used this film as a case study to teach the studes about ethical dilemmas in foreign policy. I think it's a cracking film, even though I had to sit through it 6 times in three days. Some of the dorii in the room cried as Morant and Handcock walked towards the firing squad.
"Shoot straight, you bastards! Don't make a mess of it!"
Would love to know what the Boer defector was singing about at the senior officers' dinner.
