YMMV: The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp

  • Adaptation Displacement: Very few people now remember the original Colonel Blimp, a pugnacious, reactionary caricature of a retired military officer in a popular newspaper cartoon of the time. Clive resembles him physically (pot belly and distinctive mustache) but is otherwise unrelated.
  • Values Dissonance: The sequence where time passes between Candy's return from Germany and WWI is shown by him filling the walls of his aunt's empty house with many prize animal heads. At the time, not so much a big deal. But now? A number of those animals are threatened or outright endangered thanks to hunters like Candy. The sound effects don't help.
