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 »
This "Bengal brigade" is a far cry from Henry Hathaway's classic in the thirties starring Gary Cooper and Franchot Tone ,both more exciting than Rock Hudson -who nevertheless was about to find some of his best parts in Douglas Sirk's great works- Almost twenty years later ,it's the same old song: the British are here to help the Indians ,some of the natives are cruel (like Mohammed Khan in "lives of a Bengal lancer" ) but the moral remains:both her majesty's soldiers and the Indians have got to walk hand in hand and to become brothers.Rock Hudson portrays an officer forced to resign after an unfair trial.Will he betray his queen and country?He is helped by beautiful Latah (Ursula Thiess);actually ,without her,he would be defeated.Arlene Dahl is only decorative ,as the colonel's daughter. It lacks humor,panache ,excitement,magic ,poetry ,all that made Hathaway's movie a classic of the adventures movie,in spite of its reactionary side.
