    Another favorite scene of mine is from "Gunga Din" starring Douglas Fairbanks Jr., Victor McLauglin, Cary Grant and Sam Jaffe (as Gunga Din).

    Naturally it's the one where mortally wounded Gunga Din climbs to the top of a steeple to sound his bugle to warn the British Army that the Thugees were leading them into a trap.

    It was also very heart warming in the final fade-out where Gunga Din was finally in full uniform as he always wanted to be.

    I concede to better research. Good job.

    I forgot how old that movie was (the year I was born) and in those days there was a lot of cruelty to animals. The only time I ever saw it was on TV once or twice - in black and white. Actually once in a colorized version that was so bold in color I was thinking of wearing sun glasses.
    I always hated the colorized version of old movies. Using modern technology to restore a better video quality (like it was recently done with Metropolis), that is fine, but please don't use these ugly colors.

    What I liked about the 36 version is how the motif of Rule Britannia is worked into the score, usually whenever the Union Jack is shown on screen.

    [QUOTE=Tarek Morgen;749906]According to imdb:

    Unlike the rest of Errol Flynn's blockbuster films, because of the use of trip wires and the number of horses killed in the film, "The Charge Of The Light Brigade" was never re-released by Warner Brothers. /QUOTE]

    The Charge of the Light Brigade (1936) - Trivia

    According to the same page also a stuntman was killed during the sequence.

    Thanks Tarek Morgen -- the dead horses is the reason I remembered the film.

    I don't think any horses were killed or seriously injured. Movie wranglers train special horses to fall over. It starts with a tripping line on a front hoof, slow pace, lots of straw to land on. Eventually the horse learns to do it himself on voice command, even while at full gallop. In many spots of that scene, the stuntmen called the trip command a tad early having the horses roll over BEFORE the pot charge (cannon ball) exploded. Others you can see the horses starting to get back up but quick editing to the next scene doesn't show them get all the way back up.

    Actually, that entire scene probably took several days, maybe weeks, to shoot the distance shots, close-ups, etc. They couldn't afford to lose too many horses and stunt riders all in a one day shoot.

    Though in the early days of movies, many horses (as well as other livestock) were killed until the SPCA moved in. But with horses, you also have a rider that needs to know which way the horse will fall so he can fall the OTHER way. A full grown horse rolling over you can be a bit painful.

    For some reason, Al Pacino killed that movie for me.

    He was over-acting the whole movie but that scene you described was very good because Deniro carried that whole scene.
