'North West Frontier' - It's got good guys and bad guys, Indians and a wild frontier, but this is no cowboy flick. Moslems have attacked a British colonial outpost in India and the commander (Kenneth More) must save the Maharajah's son at all costs. So begins a wild chase on a rusty old train through rebel-held territory, with a compliment of contrasting characters including the boy's feisty governess (Lauren Bacall) and the dubious Van Leyden (Herbert Lom) also along for the ride. A cracking adventure, known in the US as 'Flame Over India'. 'Ferry To Hong Kong' - An unusual reinterpretation of 'The African Queen' concept with Orson Welles as blustery ferry boat captain Cecil Hart and Curt Jurgens as his eternally insufferable passenger, Mark Conrad. Cecil runs his ferry between Macau and Hong Kong, neither of which will allow Conrad to come ashore. However a violent storm at sea gives him a chance to redeem himself in this curious adventure drama. 'King Solomon's Mines' - Based on Rider Haggard's novel, this is the first, and according to many, the best, cinematic version of the story. Set in Africa, it tells the story of a group of explorers in search of a diamond mine. To find it, they persuade an exiled chief to help them. An historic and very cinematic epic. Stars Paul Robeson as Umbopa, Cedric Hardwicke as Allan Quatermain, Roland Young as Commander Good and Anna Lee as Kathy O'Brien.
