One of Hollywood's greatest rousing adventures. Based in northwest India, Lt. McGregor (Cooper) is a seasoned frontier fighter in the Bengals Lancers who befriends new officer Lt. Forsythe (Tone). Also new to the regiment is Donald Stone (Cromwell), the son of the current commanding officer (Standing). All three will soon test their courage when the Brits encounter a vicious local revolution against colonial rule. Swell plot, lotsa action, great comraderie. Based on the novel by Major Francis Yeats-Brown, and remade in 1939 as "Geronimo."
