The Four Feathers has been filmed before, with the book [by A.E.W. Mason] from which it was adapted having enjoyed big world sale.

A young British officer resigns from his regiment the night before it embarks for an Egyptian campaign. Three of his pals and his fiancee hand him white feathers, indicative of cowardice. The next day he disappears. Alone and unaided in Egypt, he goes through harrowing ordeals to gain his reinstatement in their eyes.

June Duprez, the fiancee, is the only woman in the cast. She postulates prettily and attractively, with little else to do. Rest of the cast is excellent, with C. Aubrey Smith, enacting a lovable, elderly bore. John Clements, the hero, is excellent.

Photography is excellent along with the direction by Zoltan Korda.
