This story revolves around two people, a king played by Freddie Bartholomew, and an ex marine played by who else, Victor McLaglen. There is trouble in the kingdom and a coup is planned. Not only is his highness about to lose his thrown but also his head. But good ole vic is there to save the day not only carrying the king on his back through a murky forest but also carrying a 50 lb machine gun and firing it from the hip. The king and his kingdom are saved. Besides the machine gun sequence the ending is also exciting with McLaglen marching in to the tune of The Halls Of Montezuma and receiving an award from his highness for his bravery. A mediocre film brought to life by one of hollywood's finest and most underrated actors, Victor McLaglen.
