The long Duell - Movie Review 3
A new movie in my collection....Yul Brynner and the mighty Trevor Howard in a special movie about India around the century from 1900 till 1920.
About the Movie:
The British colonial power moves in the twenties, not just lightly with a stubborn mountain tribe. The British police officer Freddy Young is stationed at the foot of the Himalayas, however, proves to be too lax to bend Sultan, the leader of the mountain people. That brings him a disciplinary transfer. His superior Stafford takes command and makes the rebellious tribe imprison ado. The leader can escape with his heavily pregnant wife Tara - but must restore. So Young is back ordered. Young Sultan and chase each other with wechselendem luck. The Attention of a growing front of the other, and both are in their contempt against the dictatorial Stafford agreed. But this holds ready a nasty ambush for Sultan.
Here again applies:
Trevor Howard, Harry Andrews and Yul Brynner, the heroes of my childhood are (among many others of course). It is funny to see Edward Fox as young man and actor doing his first steps.
I like the movie.
I can only recommend the film. Although not the British Army is in center, but the police of old bristish India. A nice little story about power, native fighting and the british way of life in this time.
Nexttime in my personal Movie Review:
"The Charge of the Light Brigade"
