Four gallant men of the Australian Light Horse Regiment are thrust into the last great cavalry charge when the British campaign in Palestine becomes stalemated in 1917. In a desperate attempt to aid the Allies' cause, 800 young Australian horsemen set off against gunfire and insurmountable odds in a last ditch attempt to save the attacking British soldiers from imminent annihilation by the Turco-German Army.  This film includes extras:  1)  The charge for the Australian film '40,000 horsemen' and  2) the original film trailer.

Starring:  Peter Phelps, Nick Waters, John Larking, Shane Briant, Sigrid Thorton

This film includes extras:  1)  Charge scene from the 1940 Australian film '40,000 Horsemen' and 2) the original trailer.

Viewer Quote:  "This movie is well worth the 140 minutes of carefully paced storytelling, all laced with Aussie humor and superb design and photography. The charge in the last two reels is truly breathtaking, rivaling the battle charge in LAWRENCE OF ARABIA for sheer thrilling visuals. No CGI in this film... it is all real and scary and played and filmed for keeps.  Wonderful!"
