The Young Mr. Pitt


Carol Reed

The trials and tribulations of Britain's youngest Prime Minister, William Pitt. As those trials and tribulations cover the Napoleonic wars, no small potatoes here.

Robert Donat s his usual super self supported by and astonishing 147 speaking parts of whom I have barely scratched the surface, complicated by the elusiveness of this film. Maybe one day, we will return to do it better justice as it is a super evocation of time and place.
