Anna May Wong,
Brothers Monte and Ray leave Oxford to join the Royal Flying Corps. Ray loves Helen; Helen enjoys an affair with Monte; before they leave on their mission over Germany they find her in still another man's arms.
Never let timing get in the way of a good story. Queen Victoria is mentioned and shown as the reigning monarch dating the period to before her death. Yet, khaki service dress was not adopted until after the end of the second Anglo-Boer War more than a year later. While some units had used similar dress earlier, none was issued in Britain.

Kudos to MGM for actually filming this story in actual locations that it happens. We see the real Khyber Pass here. Unfortunately it's attached to a story that is
a combination of the Four Feathers and the Dreyfuss Affair.
Peter Lawford stars in Rogue's March as a brilliant staff officer in the war office
looking for some real combat assignment in India with his father Leo G. Carroll,
colonel of the old regiment. But he gets nicely set up in an espionage charge
by the Russians and is cashiered from the army.
What Lawford does is re-enlist as a private under an alias and gets shipped to
India to find out who set him up and to clear his name. Also to clear it with
Janice Rule another child of a military family who was going to marry him.
In the Fifties Russians were certainly popular villains even before the Communists took over. They're actually getting to be again currently. Always
scheming, always subverting. Of course what the British were doing in India
themselves is a question not answered.
Richard Greene is in it as Lawford's rival for Rule. But he helps out his comrade
in the best stiff upper lip tradition.
Well it's a chance to see the fabled Khyber Pass.
