Portrays in warm-hearted detail the life and loves of one extraordinary man. We meet the imposingly rotund general clive wynne-candy, a blustering old duffer who seems the epitome of stuffy, outmoded values.
Editor's Note
Colonel Blimp, an old, befuddled British military officer, reminisces about his past glories in this witty war satire. Deborah Kerr plays three different women in the Colonel's long, but not particularly well-spent life. A.K.A. "Colonel Blimp."

Plot Summary
Drama about the life of Clive Candy, an English soldier who served in three wars (Boer, World War I, World War II), and had relationships with three women along the way (each played by Deborah Kerr). Despite Candy's tours-of-duty, he harbors no ill will towards the Germans, instead he believes they have been the pawns of military leaders.
