The Lives of a Bengal Lancer (1935)



Reviews and Comments

A great old-fashioned adventure story about three British soldiers on the frontier in India. Their personal lives lead them into individual adventures that intersect and conflict with their military duties. The visual spectacle is more than you'd ever expect from a movie from 1935: there some gorgeous landscapes and architecture in this, some spectacular battle scenes, and wild mass destruction. Despite that, it remains a personal story. Check this out if you liked Gunga Din.
