“If I could only get my hands on him. I’d choke the truth out of him. I’d kill him.” – Capt. Dion Lenbridge

Number of Times Seen – 1 (11 Sep 2021)

Brief Synopsis – A wrongfully disgraced officer in the British Army return secretly to India to restore his honor.

My Take on it – This is a film that I had never heard of before coming across it during my research for this blogathon.

The premise sounded quite intriguing and I was curious to see how it would play out.

The story is actually quite engaging but it is all presented in a strange way which makes the viewer feel far too distanced from everything that transpires here.

Lawford is great in the lead role and plays both personas of his character quite well.

The story feels truncated and the less than 90 minute runtime doesn’t do this kind of story justice which is quite a shame because there is so much more potential here than is realized.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Never let timing get in the way of a good story. Queen Victoria is mentioned and shown as the reigning monarch dating the period to before her death. Yet, khaki service dress was not adopted until after the end of the second Anglo-Boer War more than a year later. While some units had used similar dress earlier, none was issued in Britain.(From IMDB)

Rating – BAFTA Worthy (5/10)
