    The Charge of the Light Brigade is a 1968 war drama based on the famous military blunder of 1854 that resulted in a massacre of British forces during the Crimean War. The film features a large ensemble cast of actors and shows the events of the operation through the eyes of both the incompetent aristocrats in command of the troops and the lower-level officers and soldiers on the front lines. Trevor Howard plays Lord Cardigan, who led the light brigade in a charge through a valley surrounded on three sides by enemy artillery outposts, an oversight that led to a massive loss of life for the British troops. The film attempts to expose the incompetence of the men responsible without belittling the impressive courage and loyalty of the men who participated in the charge. The film co-stars Vanessa Redgrave, John Gielgud, Harry Andrews, Jill Bennett, and David Hemmings. The Charge of the Light Brigade is an honest portrait of one of the most famous military failures in history, featuring an original score by John Addison and directed by Tony Richardson.moreless
