THE VIRGIN SOLDIERS (1969) (BLU-RAY)
Starring:  Hywel Bennett, Nigel Patrick, Rachel Kempson, Tsai Chin, David Bowie, Nigel Davenport, Lynn Redgrave
Directed By:  John Dexter
Composed By:  Peter Greenwell

“A bright and affectionate peek at the trials and tribulations of young National Service rookies…violence in the jungle and streets of terrorist-infested Malaya is in striking, effective contrast to the boisterous, bawdy, barrack-room atmosphere.”
– Variety

“At its best, the movie really does become involved, in small and private ways, with the question of imperialism…Evokes an awareness a little deeper and sharper and more moving than the film’s tired genre requires.”
– Roger Greenspun, The New York Times

Set in 1950 during the Malayan Emergency, The Virgin Soldiers (1969) is part service comedy, part serious look at the end of the British Empire, as seen through the eyes of more or less innocent recruits to the National Service. Brilliantly navigating the shifting tone are the divine Lynn Redgrave, Hywel Bennett, Nigel Davenport, Nigel Patrick, Rachel Kempson, and Jack Shepherd; directed by John Dexter, the film was shot on location in Singapore and Malaya by one of the great British cinematographers of the 1960s, Kenneth Higgins (Georgy Girl, Darling).
