nine) beginning with "Lloyds of London," which first shot the young
actor to stardom...
King directed many of Power's best pictures including "In Old Chicago,"
"Alexander's Ragtime Band," "Jesse James," "The Black Rose," "Captain
From Castile" and "Prince of Foxes"...
Power was a great actor able to star in everything from Musicals and
Westerns to historical epics and swashbucklers... He was originally
meant to do the first CinemaScope film, "The Robe" in 1953, but ended

army captain charging around the hills of India with courage and
He crushes a rebel uprising led by a boyhood friend, and engages in a

daughter... all against the backdrop of a legendary Indian Mutiny (also
called Sepoy Mutiny)
Michael Rennie is cast as the tall Brigadier General Maitland who
judges King (Tyrone Power) by his special qualifications, appointing
him commander of the Khyber Riflemen...

British rule... He warns King: "Last night you spare my life, now I

of four helpless British captives tied to a long wooden mast, waiting
in fear to be executed by Khan's men... Power is also fastened,
expecting the same fate, to be thrust in the chest by a deadly
The film, spectacularly directed by a sure-handed craftsman, is
sufficiently picturesque with bright and shining landscapes, very
entertaining with an alarming storm and a rousing climax in which Power
leads a furious assault filling the giant CinemaScope screen with
impressive action sequences...
