Movie Info

Gary Cooper stars in this rousing adventure saga of three British officers of the 41st Regiment of Bengal Lancers of India. The story begins as Lt. McGregor (Gary Cooper) accepts two new officers to his company -- the brash Lt. Fortesque (Franchot Tone) and Lt. Stone (Richard Cromwell), the son of the garrison's commander, Col. Stone (Guy Standing). In an effort not to show favoritism, Stone's father barely acknowledges his son during a parade of the new officers. Lt. Stone resents this

One of the most exciting action-adventures of the 1930s (perhaps of all time), catapulting Gary Cooper to major stardom.

A rousing adventure story in the Kiplingesque fashion.

Audience Reviews for The Lives of a Bengal Lancer
