Sean Connery and Michael Caine - chins out, shoulders squared and with an occasional sly wink - star as British sergeants Danny Dravot and Peachy Carnehan. The Empire was built by men like these two.

One star for the scenery - The Man Who Would Be King review by TE

Spoiler Alert
11/03/2020

Painful to watch in 2020, with its relentless parade of casual racism. At least this makes it true to Kipling's original story.

It's a shame that John Huston chose to direct such a childish tale of misplaced derring-do.

Michael Caine's performance was rightly panned by the critics when the film came out. His shrill Cockney mannerisms grate from the start. The depths are plumbed when he and Connery adopt the red tunics and white pith helmets that featured in 'Zulu', some 10 years earlier.

There are some striking backgrounds (the film was shot in Morocco) but that is the only good thing about this dreadful turkey.
