Modern Epics Box Set : The Guns of Navarone/Bridge on the River Kwai/The Man Who Would Be King/Lord Jim - Cert. PG

£5.99

Product description

Modern Epics

Four epic movies:

'The Guns of Navarone' (1961) tells the story of a group of mismatched Allied soldiers are sent to sabotage two powerful Nazi guns situated on a Greek island in 1943. If their mission fails, the guns will wipe out the 2,000 British soldiers who are attempting to evacuate civilians further down the coast. The mission is led by the dispassionate Captain Mallory (Gregory Peck), whose clinical approach does not find favour with explosives expert Corporal Miller (David Niven). Meanwhile, the group's Greek patriot guide Andrea Stavros (Anthony Quinn) is nursing a grudge against Mallory for an old injustice.

'The Man Who Would Be King' (1975) is based on a story by Rudyard Kipling set in 1880s India. British army officers Daniel Dravot (Sean Connery) and Peachy Carnehan (Michael Caine) spend their time concocting money-making scams. However, when they journey into Kafiristan with the intention of setting themselves up as rulers, they fall foul of the local District Commissioner, and their plan does not quite go according to plan.

David Lean's classic British war film 'Bridge on the River Kwai' (1957) is based on the novel by Pierre Boulle. A group of British POWs are forced to build a bridge in Burma for the Japanese. Led by Colonel Nicholson (Alec Guinness) they not only build the bridge but organise the whole building programme and are proud of the final result. However, unbeknownst to the POWs, a British commando team has been given a mission to destroy it.

Peter O'Toole plays a merchant seaman in the 1964 adaptation of Joseph Conrad's novel 'Lord Jim'. A moment of cowardice, when O'Toole abandons his ship in a storm, leads him to spend his later years trying to redeem himself. His redemption comes when he heads for South Asia where he becomes the hero of a tribe of oppressed Indians.
