Take a look at the credits for Ronald Neame’s Tunes of Glory, an extraordinary character study of officers in a Scottish Battalion, released in 1960.
In the leads, Alec Guinness and John Mills, two of England’s finest. A young Susannah York in her first role.
Malcolm Arnold created the score, while Arthur Ibbetson was behind the camera.
Anne Coates cut this little masterpiece, and John Cox handled sound.
Criterion has done a beautiful job with color and densities, in handling the scan from the Eastman Color negative, the final result of which looks akin to a 35mm print.
For those who have never experienced Tunes of Glory, you’re in for a treat.
