The Four Feathers

This Technicolor spectacular, directed by Zoltán Korda, is considered the finest of the many adaptations of A. E. W. Mason’s classic 1902 adventure novel about the British empire’s exploits in Africa, and a crowning achievement of Alexander Korda’s legendary production company, London Films.

Sanders of the River

Paul Robeson moved his family to London in 1928, headlining six British films in twelve years. Robeson's first British production, Zoltán Korda's _Sanders of the River_, however, ended up an embarrassment, its story of an African tribal leader transformed into a celebration of the British Empire.
