Editorial Reviews

It is the North West Frontier of India at the turn of the century. Captain Scott (Kenneth More) is sent by the British Governor to rescue a five-year-old Prince and his American Governess, Catherine Wyatt (Lauren Bacall), when a rebellion breaks out amongst the tribesmen. Scott is instructed to take the child to safety in Kalapur, which is 300 miles away, on the pretext that while he is alive, no rebellion can succeed. They are forced to travel on an old and fragile train, but it soon becomes clear that the danger from the train is the least of their worries. Someone on the train is trying to kill the Prince.

Northwest Frontier stars Kenneth More as a British Army Captain in the early 1900's India. A child prince must be smuggled out of a palace that is surrounded by rebels intent on killing the prince. Lauren Bacall is the boy's governess. A train is put together by the Captain to ram the barricades put up by the rebels. Herbert Lom is a newspaper man who tags along. Also on the train is Wilfred Hyde White and several others. The train makes a successful escape and is quickly pursued by the rebels. All sorts of adventures await the train passengers as they try to reach the British fort. I.S Johar steals the show as the trains engineer. Above average action adventure movie. Worth seeing.

Well, another great British film brought to life on DVD. My dog-eared
VHS tape of "Flame Over India", which is, I think, the original title,
which I converted to DVD - not a great transfer, mind you - can now be
retired.

Some say this was a variation on the incarnations of the movie
"Stagecoach", but that doesn't do this excellent adventure film
justice, with its stellar cast, illumined by Ms. Bacall, who is more
beautiful here, as the intrepid governess, than in any of her other
films.

The outstanding performances by an ensemble of familiar and unfamiliar
faces is also graced by I.S. Johar's Gupta, the dedicated engineer,
who provides a perfect, comic counterpoint to what is also a serious
film about British imperialism and of India, a land of ancient
animosities and great beauty.

Format: DVD
Rebellion is breaking out in India and all that stands in the way of religious and political chaos, not to mention British control, is a six-year-old Hindu prince and the unflagging confidence of Captain Scott (Kenneth More). Charged with bringing the boy safely from a small, fortified hill station to the British base at Kalapur 300 miles away, Captain Scott will need every bit of his resourcefulness, energy, ingenuity and pluck.

The year is 1905 and Muslim tribes in India's north west territories are rising up against the Hindu princes and their British masters. Young prince Kishan is seen as a symbol of order and justice. If the rebels can kill him, there will be uprisings against the British which they may not be able to control. But how to get the prince to Kalapur? The last refugee trains have left and attempting the journey by horseback through enemy territory would be madness. But then Captain Scott remembers there was an old, derelict steam locomotive, The Empress of India, in the train sheds. Could it be put back into service? He calls upon his friend, Gupta (I. S. Johar), who assures him in broken English that his locomotive will not fail Captain Scott and that Gupta, himself, will run it. In a trice Gupta brings needed maintenance to The Empress and Scott finds himself loading an assorted group of passengers onto the only passenger car. There is Lady Wyndham (Ursula Jeans), the governor's wife; Peters (Eugene Deckers), an arms dealer whose weapons now most likely arm the rebels; Mr. Bridie (Wilfred Hyde-White), a diplomat and old India hand; and Van Layden (Herbert Lom), a reporter who has no love for the British. Most importantly, there is the prince and his American governess, Catherine Wyatt (Lauren Bacall).

Lauren Bacall plays an American doctor's widow who is responsible for a young Hindu prince in India. Along with British army captain Kenneth More and others, they board an old train to escape to safety, because rivals want the young prince dead. Of course, the train trip is anything but smooth and uneventful. The film works really well, with enough quiet moments mixed with action scenes to keep the viewer entertained. There is also a very credible attraction that develops between the Bacall and More characters. Bacall's character is quite outspoken (the kind of character she did a lot when she got older), while More is amused by her and attracted to her. There's a lot of action and suspense built up, and since this film is not well known these days, it's a nice surprise to view.

If you're looking for action, this one's got it all. Lauren Bacall plays a doctor's wife who is devoted to saving a crown prince in India from Muslim factions who wish to destroy the last semblance of the prince's father's rule. With a hardy band of British and Indian players, they set out on a dangerous mission by train that includes ambushes, scenes of carnage and a dastardly plot to kill the crown prince in a breathtaking bridge scene that's not to be missed. Ms. Bacall is radiant, and plays this one with a quiet dignity well-suited to her strong lady's role. Wilfrid Hyde-White is a delight and Kenneth More's Capt. Scott is an A-1 action hero, with foibles and faults, but in the end a very stiff British upper lip. Herbert Lom is simply the devil incarnate, and you'll see why. As I said before, this is a Saturday-morning serial with a sophisticated worldview (geopolitical discussions are not just the backdrop, but the point) and enough well-paced action to more than satisfy.
