Jock Sinclair is a whiskey-drinking, by-the-bootstraps commanding officer of a peacetime Scottish battalion. Sinclair is a lifetime military man. He expects loyalty and respect from his men. But when Basil Barrow, an educated, by-the-book scion from a traditional military family enters the scene as Sinclair's replacement, the two men become locked in a fierce battle for control of the battalion and the hearts and minds of its men.

I loved this movie. Strong performances by Alec Guinness and John Mills, compelling characters and a surprising climax. Lovers of Scottish things may have particular interest.

If there is such a thing as a men's tearjerker this is it. This man, at least, is never left with a dry eye as he watches these two men struggle to maintain their masculine identities of leadership. Director Neame handles the sets, mattes, décor and cinematography to establish the perfect atmosphere for this Olympian battle of the titans. The closing snowstorm, freezing out the world and blanketing all with white, is the perfect conclusion.
