As Captain Scott and Van Layden talk beside the trainload of massacred refugees, one of the dead men, wearing a yellow turban and hanging out a train window behind Van Layden, visibly raises his head, turns his face away in the opposite direction, then resettles his head in a more comfortable position, all while Scott and Van Layden are talking.

The American release, entitled "Flame Over India", gives Lauren Bacall top billing. The British release, which is entitled "North West Frontier" and is the one on DVD, gives Kenneth More, a popular star in England, top billing. See more »
I taped this movie simply because it co-starred Lauren Bacall, and while I expected the movie to be good, it far exceeded my expectations. North West Frontier, is a terrifically paced, exciting adventure. Bacall co-stars as a governess who must escort a young heir to the Hindu throne through a cross country Indian battlefield. Helping her to do this is a British solider and a random assortment of civilians along for the ride. Herbert Lom is wonderfully creepy - but I won't say why. Definately a movie to check out.
