You don't hear much good about this movie nowadays. Maybe it's dated but I think it's pretty good. I was 10 when I saw it at the cinema and loved it. I wonder what influence it had on the early Civil War reenactment scene? Last of the Mohicans inspired a wave of French and Indian reenactment in the 90s. There were a lot of props from the film Cromwell in circulation at least - swords, pots and armour. I am sure people must have gone to the cinema and come out and joined the Sealed Knot. The two central characters are perfectly cast. Alec Guiness nails it with his Charles I. Richard Harris gives a spirited rendition of Cromwell. I am sure you have all seen it but if you haven't its worth a look.
