Tunes of Glory is a 1960 British film directed by Ronald Neame and starring Alec Guinness, John Mills, and Susannah York. Lt. Col. Jock Sinclair (Guinness) is an officer in the Scottish army. He is asked to take over command of a regiment until a replacement be found. When Col. Basil Barrow (Mills), who is a bit rough around the edges, comes to take Sinclair's place, the two men begin a feud that does not subside. Sinclair was brought up in high society and went to prestigious schools, while Basil worked his way up from the bottom, starting in the military at the lowest rank. Their never ending feud threatens the regiment, especially when Sinclair discovers a soldier in private company with his daughter, and Barrow threatens to report him. Tunes of Glory won the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay at the 1961 Academy Awards.
