Abstract

Tony Richardson's 1968 "Charge of the Light Brigade", with its star cast, lavish sets and location shoots, was one of the most expensive British films ever made. Mark Connelly examines the film, its production, the role of its stars David Hemmings, Vanessa Redgrave and John Gieldgud, and director Richardson's running feud with the press and the film's subsequent fame. He shows the film to be representative of its time, in its visual style and its use of 60s themes, to discuss how "Charge of the Light Brigade", while meticulously reconstructed from authentic sources, reveals the horror of war to a world struggling to come to terms with American involvement in Vietnam.
