Adventure in all its glory! They don't make them like this anymore - but they should. Based on a Rudyard Kipling story and packed with spectacle, humour, excitement and bold twists of fate, John Huston's stirring adaptation of The Man Who Would Be King is one of the screen's great adventures. Sean Connery and Michael Caine star as British sergeants Danny Dravot and Peachy Carnehan. The Empire was built by men like these two. Now they're out to build an empire of their own: they're venturing into remote Kafristan to become as rich as kings! Huston had earlier envisioned Clark Gable and Humphrey Bogart as the leads. Later, Paul Newman and Robert Redford were proposed. Newman, however, suggested Connery and Caine. It's hard to imagine any others leads in a masterwork Michael Caine has called "the only film I've done that will last after I'm gone."
