John Huston had wanted to film The Man Who Would Be King ever since he was a young man, but only a seasoned pro could have brought out the world-weariness inherent in Rudyard Kipling's tale of a colonialist adventure gone awry. Huston's sagacity expands and enriches the story of two British soldiers (Sean Connery and Michael Caine, both at the top of their game) who embark on a mission to establish themselves as rulers of a remote civilization. This action classic will be followed by Sinful Davey, a bawdy comedy in the vein of Tom Jones (and one of the biggest flops of Huston's career).
