Product Description

King of the Khyber Rifles (1953)

Director:

Henry King

Writers:

Ivan Goff (screenplay), Ben Roberts (screenplay)

Stars:

Tyrone Power, Terry Moore, Michael Rennie
 
This remake of John Ford's The Black Watch (29) stars Tyrone Power as British army captain stationed in India in 1857. Shunned by his fellow officers because he is a half caste, Power defies the social structure of the era by falling in love with the daughter (Terry Moore) of his superior officer. Power proves his loyalty to the Crown by quelling an uprising, led by his Indian boyhood friend (Guy Rolfe). The actors do their best, but the storyline is trite and stilted when dwelling on matters of honor and romance. King of the Khyber Rifles works best as an action picture--and in this respect it is immensely superior to the earlier John Ford film, which almost plays like a comedy when seen today.

  1. Good movie 5 Star Review

    Good movie. The technicolor is beautiful. Terry Moore was unwatchable, but then I watched it to see Tyrone Power. :-)


  2. OK film 3 Star Review

    I am a fan of Tyrone Power and had never seen this film. In addition I produced a film back in 2001 with Terry Moore and was interested to see her in her early years. the film is a pretty standard "British India" adventure that holds your intreast. If one is a fan of this type of film I can recommend it.


  3. finally found a decent print 4 Star Review

    Posted by on Apr 2nd 2015

    This is of course a classic film starring one of our greatest actors. Again it's a mystery why a fine film like this does not have Wide DVD release. And the product from Zeus is a very decent quality picture unlike any of the others that I have found around.
