Guns At Batasi
1964 War Drama starring Richard Attenborough in superb form as old-fashioned, by-the-book Regimental Sergeant-Major Lauderdale, who, stuck on a remote Colonial African army base, with junior ranks who ridicule his obsession over spit-and-polish, and forced to play host to a visiting liberal female MP, suddenly finds himself caught up in a local coup d'etat and must use his military experience to try to save those in his care.
Regimental Sergeant-Major Lauderdale is a spit-and-polish, by-the-book disciplinarian, who seems like a 19th Century anachronism in a sleepy peacetime African outpost of the modern British Commonwealth. He is ridiculed behind his back by his subordinate NCO's and must play host to a liberal female MP making a tour of the base. However, when an ambitious African officer, who happens to be a protege of the MP's, initiates a coup d'etat against Captain Abraham, the lawful African commandant, the resourceful RSM uses all his military training to arm his men despite being under house arrest and rescue the wounded commandant from a certain firing squad.
