Rudyard Kipling's moral fable on the pursuit of power becomes a rumbustious minor epic in the hands of Huston, Connery and Caine, all at the peak of their powers. Set in India, it tells the uncomfortable but entertaining story of a pair of conmen who find themselves elevated by the locals to a rank far above their natural station, but falling from grace owing to their innate greed. Rollicking good fun.
