THE MAN WHO WOULD BE KING

Based on a Rudyard Kipling story and packed with spectacle, humour, excitement and bold twists of fate, John Huston's film of The Man Who Would Be King earns its crown as one of screen's great adventures. Sean Connery and Michael Caine—chins out, shoulders squared and with an occasional sky wink—star as British sergeants Danny Dravot and Peachy Carnehan. The Empire was built by men like these two. Now they're out to build an empire of their own: they're venturing into remote Kafiristan to become rich as kings. Also starring Christopher Plummer as Kipling.
