FOUR GREAT NORTH WEST FRONTIER COLONIAL ADVENTURES IN FILM

 

·         THE LIVES OF A BENGAL LANCER. The Lives of a Bengal Lancer is a 1935 American epic-adventure-drama film that used the title of the 1930 autobiography of the British former soldier, Francis Yeats-Brown. The film is a Paramount picture. Henry Hathaway directed, and the writers, who created a story that had nothing in common with Yeats-Brown's book other than the setting, included Grover Jones, William Slavens McNutt, Waldemar Young, John L. Balderston and Achmed Abdullah.


·         THE DRUM. The Drum is a 1938 British Technicolor film from the book The Drum by A. E. W. Mason. The film is directed by Zoltan Korda and produced by Alexander Korda. It stars Sabu Dastagir, Raymond Massey, Roger Livesey and Valerie Hobson. The Scottish regiment featured in this film is a battalion of the Gordon Highlanders which was for a time, garrisoned at Fort Jamrud at the mouth of the Khyber Pass. One sequence shows an Indian Army gun crew unlimbering a mountain battery.


·         KING OF THE KYBER RIFLES. King of the Khyber Rifles is a 1953 adventure film directed by Henry King and starring Tyrone Power and Terry Moore. The film shares its title but little else with the novel King of the Khyber Rifles (1916) by Talbot Mundy. This novel was also the basis for John Ford's The Black Watch (1929). The Khyber Pass scenes were shot in the Alabama Hills, Lone Pine, California. Released by 20th Century Fox, the film was one of the first shot in Technicolor CinemaScope.


·         GUNGA DIN. Gunga Din is a 1939 RKO adventure film directed by George Stevens and starring Cary Grant, Victor McLaglen, and Douglas Fairbanks Jr., loosely based on the poem of the same name by Rudyard Kipling combined with elements of his short story collection Soldiers Three. The film is about three British sergeants and Gunga Din, their native bhisti (water bearer), who fight the Thuggee, an Indian murder cult, in colonial British India.
