Movie Info

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.


Critic Reviews for North West Frontier

  • The film stays on its schoolboy level : good, and mostly good-humoured, fun which is splen- didly photographed, and moves imperturbably from climax to climax, each one outdoing the last with the satisfactory assurance of its hero.

  • A timeless, exciting, no-nonsense, old-fashioned colonial adventure story set after the turn of the 20th century.

  • It may not be another 'Lawrence of Arabia,' yet it has an excellent cast of characters and plenty of rousing excitement and stirring melodrama.

Audience Reviews for North West Frontier

High production values,good acting and a not uninteresting story are pluses but the film seems to go on forever. A little editing and a quicker pace would have helped immeasurably.
