Review

Our Score
Very silly Northwest Frontier romp, with Victor Mature in dark make-up as Kasim Khan, a fearsome but noble Indian leader whose family has been massacred by red-coated Brits. There ensues much pillage (but thankfully little rape), a lot of smirking by Mature, romantic interest from forgotten starlet Anne Aubrey and some wince-inducing comic mugging from Anthony Newley. Quite a lot of money was thrown at it, but this remains a B-movie at heart. Producer Albert R Broccoli, source writer Richard Maibaum and cameraman Ted Moore would all be more profitably employed on the Bond films.
