-- Classic adventure yarn loosely based on the Rudyard Kipling poem about a water carrier (Sam Jaffe) in Victoria's India who here dies a hero with a bugle warning British forces of an ambush. Director George Stevens focuses the action on three seasoned sergeants (Victor McLaglen, Cary Grant and Douglas Fairbanks, Jr.) whose bickering comradeship provides some hardy fun while fighting Thugs, a long-suppressed murder cult led by a formidable foe (Eduardo Ciannelli). Old-fashioned "manly" celebration of such virtues as loyalty, courage and steadfastness, though with plenty of stylized violence. (A-I) (br)
