I expect, in it's day this film was the feature of the show, with a couple of big names hopefully pulling-in the audiences. It's a typical Hammer Film but without the horror factor. Hammer Horrors were the real draw at the box office despite being thrown together, re-used or re-invented stories of thousand year old Mummys and Vampires, Goblings and Ghosts. Oliver Reed stars in this little creation of someone's imagination, but by the time this film was made, Ollie had been on the bottle for sometime and it shows in places where he wasn't quite able to keep to timing in the sword play and punch-up scenes, a pity really that he went the way of the bottle, he had great potential at the beginning of his career, it was a major factor in his death. The story has the British Army stationed in India keeping the Russians out of the country, I can't stop thinking it's so much like "Carry On Up The Khyber," how poorly made it was, but when all's said and done, it still has a place in the history of British Cinema!
