“An action-filled entertainment pic which contrasts personal nobility with political expediency. The colorful production builds in spectacular display…Charlton Heston and Laurence Olivier propel towards inevitable tragedy the drama of two sincere opponents.” —Variety

“Some mighty handsome scenery and some roaring battle happenings…these are things that are beautifully and excitingly shown in this film.” —The New York Times

Khartoum (1966), directed by Basil Dearden and written by Robert Ardrey, is an historical epic about the ill-fated expedition of British General Charles Gordon (Charlton Heston) in late-19th-century Sudan, an attempt to halt the incursion of the fanatical Muslim leader, Muhammad Ahmad (Laurence Olivier), the self-styled Mahdi (“The Expected One”). This action-adventure yarn, chock-full of thrilling battle sequences, stunning desert landscapes, and fascinating political intrigue led by British Prime Minister Gladstone (Ralph Richardson), is one of the last of its breed: a large-scale roadshow extravaganza with an all-star cast.

Enjoy the extensive Julie Kirgo liner notes and film art packaged with the Blu-ray disc.
