This is a 1966 film directed by Basil Dearden, based on historical accounts of Gordon's defence of the Sudanese city of Khartoum from the forces of the Mahdist army during the Siege of Khartoum in 1883.
With stunning desert battles staged by the creator of the Ben-Hur chariot race, this film is a magnificently staged action spectacle with outstanding portrayals of General Gordon and the Mahdi---a Muslim fanatic who, nonetheless, respects the British general.

Intelligent,compelling,widescreen historical spectacle unfortunately lost in the shadow of LAWRENCE OF ARABIA. Olivier is eerily effective as an 1885-era Osama bin Laden, Heston is first-rate as "Chinese" Gordon, with solid support from a charismatic Richard Johnson. Fabulous battle sequences were staged by the legendary Yakima Canutt.

NOT, by any stretch of the imagination, another "Lawrence of Arabia." We laughed and laughed at Chuck's wavering attempt at an "English" accent!
