Flame Over India

For those who like to wargame Colonial India, I highly recommend this movie, Flame Over India.

A city is besieged by tribesmen and the British have to get a little boy out of the city by train.  They take the train to the next town all the while being attacked by the enemy.  The print is excellent, the color is fantastic, and the movie is very good.

The original British title of the film is 'North West Frontier'. I am guessing that they changed it for the US because although in the UK the North West Frontier would always be understood to refer to India, in the US it wouldn't be.

Thanks E for the additional information. There is also the 1940 movie Northwest Passage which might cause confusion for Americans too!

I haven't seen this flick since I as a youngster...might have to go out and get the DVD now.
Thanks for the heads-up.

Carry on.

You saw it as a youngster? Wow, I did not realize the movie was that old. Thanks for reading, and get the movie, it is very action packed.
