Inspired by Rudyard Kipling’s famous poem, this film tells the story of three English soldier comrades battling the Punjabi in India while accompanied by their lowly water-bearer Gunga Din, who longs to be a fighter himself.

They don't make em like they used to, is so true of
Gunga Din. I smiled all the way through this film, it's such a great classic adventure film, with likeable characters & fun action, very much in the same vein as another Rudyard Kipling adaptation The Man Who Would Be King. Those who've seen this will know how this film influenced the temple of doom. But aside from it influencing indy, this film still stands tall.
