Tunes of Glory

Following World War II in peacetime Scotland, brigade headquarters replaces commanding officer Major Jock Sinclair (Alec Guinness), a boisterous battalion leader, with the strict, temperamental Lieutenant Colonel Basil Barrow (John Mills). Resentful toward his replacement, Sinclair undermines Barrow's authority and damages his successor's reputation among the soldiers. Barrow faces an uphill battle in regaining the discipline and respect of his battalion.
