Then amidst clashes between Freddy and Stafford, and the entry of Jane Stafford, it is made known that Sultan's tribe will be transported by train to a compound in Delhi. This news reaches Sultan and he prepares to attack the train and free his people - little knowing the trap he and his men will soon be walking in to. Written by
an uneventful and mainly forgettable action adventure.
apart from a customary good performance by yul brynner; the best thing about this movie is the appearance of a little known british actress named imogen hassall in the minor role of tara. this beautiful and underrated star who acted in a series of mostly garbage pics like this, was tragically fated to die of a drugs overdose in 1980. she was only 38.
