This movie was the "Indiana Jones" of it's time -- with lots of action and adventure. Great to see these movie stars in their prime. Interestingly, the cult featured in the film was chosen by Spielberg for the bad guys of the second Indiana Jones movie. Enjoy.

My impressions were the elephant were not treated very well. Besides all that loved dins loyalty to the british. I mean if they made this movie today Din would have turned on the British in a heartbeat.

A Rudyard Kipling story of British soldiers in India putting down an insurrection of religious Indian zealots. A very good movie, but royally spoiled by the fact that the major Indian characters are played by whites in black face. At this time (1939) Hollywood had no shame, but this is an example of American racism that many would like to be swept under the rug.
