Christopher Columbus

Film, Action and adventure
Gainsborough's flailing attempts to add 'class' and international prestige to their more interestingly low-key 'domestic' output resulted in this expensively mounted dodo, elegantly consigned to the scrapheap of film history by contemporary critic Richard Winnington with the withering opinion that it 'contrives with something like genius neither to inform, excite, entertain, titillate or engage the eye'.
