Framed Documents #043: Guns At Batasi

Guns At Batasi

Prim RSM Lauderdale (Dickie Attenborough) outlines his plan of attack in Guns At Batasi, a rather well-produced little post-Empire potboiler which has its wits about it, which understands the value of not playing it too straight, and which underplays its box office-satisfying romantic subplot (involving Mia Farrow, of all people). There are excellently understated performances from the likes of Errol John, Earl Cameron, Percy Herbert, David Lodge, Bernard Horsfall, John Meillon and pornographer Graham Stark.
