Gunga Din Review


Modern viewers will recognize Gunga Din primarily as the film that inspired Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom -- and from which Indy borrows heavily. This heavy action/adventure offers three British soldiers (Cary Grant, Victor McLaglen, Douglas Fairbanks Jr.) on assignment in India, where they eventually face off against the evil Thuggee cult. The helpful manservant Gunga Din shadows them -- and saves the day. A little jingoistic today, the film is nonetheless a critical standard-bearer of historical adventure flicks, and a quite funny one too.
