Rahman Khan (Douglas Dumbrille'), leader of the hill tribes, has been inciting rebellion against the British Army. Joan Latimer (Rochelle Hudson), recently arrived from England, is on her way to Fort Draga to marry Captain Jeffrey Allison (Patric Knowles), a hero in the British Army in India. Escorting Joan is Jeffrey's younger brother Neil Allison (Richard Cromwell), who has fallen in love with Joan, a hopeless attachment made more intense by the bitterness he feels toward his brother who has always been held up to him as a fine example to follow. Before Jeffrey and Joan can be married, Rahman Khan strikes and he is sent on a dangerous mission. He and his brother quarrel before he leaves, and Joan has told Neil that not even Jeffrey's death would change her attitude and that Neil's continued declarations of love for her are distasteful.

Days of the Raj.
17 July 2004 | by (Adelaide Australia) – See all my reviews

I must admit that I am a fan of all those old movies that were set in India during the days of the British Raj, and this movie, while certainly made as a B programmer, has stayed with me for over 50 years!! I still recall Patric Knowles as the Soldier, with the then lovely Rochelle Hudson as the usual damsel in distress, while the evil Khan played by perennial heavy Douglass Dumbrille - it was a lot of fun, with a cast of well-known faces, with unknown names in supporting roles. One thing that really stuck in my memory was the musical score which I have now discovered was nominated for an Academy Award - very hard to believe for a B film. If you can find this in a DVD or Video store , rent it as you will really enjoy it.
