Guns of Darkness

Movie: Guns of Darkness
Director: Anthony Asquith
Produced by: Associated British Picture Corporation, Cavalcade Productions, Concorde, Warner Brothers
Released By: Pathé Films, Warner Brothers
MPAA Rating:

This drama by director Anthony Asquith, a noted lynchpin in British cinematic history, may wear too many hats to be identified as either an adventure, a treatise on non-violence, a psychological study, or whatever. It is all of these things as it starts out in the midst of a revolution in a fictional South American country. David Niven is Tom Jordan, the sometimes disagreeable manager of a British plantation. When it becomes apparent that the leader of the country will be forced to flee for his life, Tom and his wife Claire end up chauffeuring the wounded President Rivera out of there. Tom and Claire are in the midst of marital troubles — which tend to pale when their car lands in quicksand in a river bed, or when she is unexpectedly threatened by a frightening band of young men while out exploring an abandoned village. And for the pacifist Tom, the worse is yet to come when he is forced to either kill or be killed.
