The cast includes three actors who would become icons in the Star Trek world. Arnold Moss would play "Anton Karidian" (The Conscience of the King - 1966) Torin Thatcher would play "Marplon" (The Return of the Archons - 1967) and Michael Ansara would have a recurring role as the Klingon "Kang" not only in "Star Trek" but also in "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" and in "Star Trek: Voyager" See more »
The most surprising thing about this movie is that it was directed by Laslo Benedek ,a man associated with the more serious end of the movie market -as per Death of a Salesman and the Brando vehicle The Wild One .It is set in the year 1856 in British India ,more specifically on the North West Frontier .Rock Hudson is improbably cast as a British army Captain who is tried ,convicted and forced to resign his commission for disobeying the orders of a senior officer even though by doing so he was responsible for the capture of a key rebel stronghold .He becomes a big game hunter but continues to be devoted to the British cause and infiltrates a group of rebels plotting to overthrow the Raj .In between all these distractions he manages to make time to woo Vivian Morrow(Arlene Dahl)the daughter of the regimental commander Colonel Morrow (Tobin Thatcher) Hudson is miscast but battles valiantly with the role ,Dahl is merely decorative as is Ursula Thiess . The best performances -mostly because they are better cast-are given by Thatcher and Dan O'Herlihy as British soldiers
This is a good co-feature movie and will be enjoyed by lovers of the old style "ripping yarn
