"The Gathering Storm" is a 1974 American television biopic film, about Winston Churchill's life in the years just prior to, and at the start of, World War II, from 1936 to 1940.

It was a joint production of the BBC and NBC, made in 1974; it starred Richard Burton as Churchill.

The film has the same name as the first volume of Churchill's largely autobiographical six-volume history of the war. This volume covers the period from 1919 to 10 May 1940, the day he became prime minister.

Although another film about Churchill, made in 2002, was also called "The Gathering Storm", it bears little resemblance to the 1974 one.
