The film moves leisurely, but with rare charm and visual interest.

Fiction and documentary footage rub shoulders uneasily, but the latter (shot by Flaherty in India) is vividly watchable.

Top Critic

Those who know Flaherty's previous work will not be disappointed in his work in this film and the film must be seen for it in spite of the additions and contortions.

Robert Flaherty's craftsmanship shows in one of his best Hollywood features.

Robert Flaherty joined forces with Zoltan Korda to produce the terrific adventure film, based upon a Rudyard Kipling tale.

Although it has not aged well, there is still a great deal of merit to the story, the style and the stars, and any young person cannot fail to love it.
