Three fun loving sergeants are doing fine until one of them wants to get married and leave the service. The other two trick him into a final mission where they end up confronting the entire cult by themselves as the British Army is entering a trap. This is of the “War is fun” school of movie making. It has the flavour of watching Notre Dame play an inferior high school team.
Plot: British army sergeants Ballantine, Cutter and MacChesney serve in India during the 1880s, along with their native water-bearer, Gunga Din. While completing a dangerous telegraph-repair mission, they unearth evidence of the suppressed Thuggee cult. When Gunga Din tells the sergeants about a secret temple made of gold, the fortune-hunting Cutter is captured by the Thuggees, and it’s up to his friends to rescue him.

Rudyard Kipling’s poem brought to life in a powerful, strikingly meaningful way…
This old film just has some important elements the bulk of current films seem to lack: strength of character, genuine heroism and an understanding of what true altruism and sacrifice mean. And Sam Jaffe, a terrific (now-unfortunately-deceased) character actor breaks the viewer’s heart as the “regimental bhisti, Gunga Din,” who takes constant abuse and gives his all, including his life, to carry water to the men of the Queen’s regiment even in the thick of battle.
Funny, I don’t remember it as a comedy, though I think there may have been some spots of humor in it, but then, I was rather young the last time I saw it on the Late, Late Show… too many years ago to even want to think about.
It’s a wonderful movie and I hope the animated version, coming out next year, does the poem and story the same good service the 1939 film managed to do.
