   StormCnter  On a show business blog, participants were asked to name their all-time most favorite classic movie. The usual suspects were all listed, of course, but this movie got many of the mentions. I have never heard of it. Anyone else?

"The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp" (1943 ), with Deborah Kerr and Roger Livesey
From the Boer War through World War II, a soldier rises through the ranks in the British military.

   Richdet  It used to turn up occasionally on TCM. I saw at least some of it once, and I know Deborah Kerr plays multiple roles. Here is one Roger Ebert's assessment (anybody ever hear of him? ) with a lot of background info, including some interesting dish about Winston Churchill, who didn't want to see the movie made:
