Synopsis
The heroic commoner, Oliver Cromwell (Richard Harris), wages battle single-handedly against King Charles I and gains control of the British monarchy in this historical epic set in 17th century England. Academy Award Nominations: Best Score. Academy Awards: Best Costume Design.
Notes
Produced by Irving Allen Productions.

Color by Technicolor. Shot in Panavision at Shepperton Studios, England.

Battle sequences were shot on location in Spain, using the Spanish army as extras.

Writer director Ken Hughes had been trying to make a film based on the life of Oliver Cromwell for 10 years prior to the production of "Cromwell." However, no British producers were interested in this project. It took American producer Irving Allen, with the backing of Columbia Pictures, to make this film possible.

Alec Guinness's King Charles I is directly modeled on painter Van Dyke's portrait of the monarch.
