Storyline

During the Mahdist insurrection in the Anglo-Egyptian Sudan, veteran colonial private Baker teams up with freshly arrived gentleman Murchison, trying to evacuate from southern Barash the emir's daughter Asua and her English governess, Miss Woodville. It's a perilous journey on the Nile and its banks. They must face crocodiles, Arab slavers and a backward Negro tribe they prey on, where king Gondoko's missionary-raised brother Kimrasi saves and joins them. Once in capital Khartum, they find the revolt has reached it and the men join the fight. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

The movie contains footage from The Four Feathers (1939) See more »

Goofs

There was never a Royal Suffolk Regiment in the British Army, though there was a Suffolk Regiment (so named in 1881). The Suffolk Regiment did not serve in Egypt and was not part of any attempt to rescue General Gordon. The First Battalion was in India and the Second Battalion was in various postings during this period. The Second Battalion did get posted to India in 1892, well after the events of this film.

cannibalising the four feathers
21 July 2007 | by (london) – See all my reviews

I do not recall seeing a film which derives not only background shots but most of its action from stock shots and parts of another feature,including the climax.So virtually all of the action comes from The Four Feathers(1938)This film looks as if it has been made on a shoestring.For example there are shots of charging elephants and you have the actors shooting at them from in front of a process screen.It is so clear that they have not been anywhere near the Sudan.At the climax you have Anthony Quayle on a small set on the left of frame with the main action fromThe Four Feathers either put in by a process screen or an optical printer.The acting is not up to much ,the only exception being the dependable Anthony Quayle.So all told rather a disappointment.
