In this classic Kipling tale, Toomai (Sabu) and his elephant Kala Nag, accompany his father on a government expedition. When his father is killed by a tiger, Toomai is sent home, but comes to Kala Nag's rescue when the elephant is sentenced to death for throwing his new driver. Toomai and Kala Nag escape into the wild, where they enjoy many adventures and become heroes.

A way of life in India, which has now virtually totally vanished, this makes for a good history lesson, albeit a story, of how the Brits used to behave in colonial days & gives the viewer an idea of how elephants were used for logging work in the Indian jungle.(We used to watch this same activity in jungle areas of Thailand in the 1960's)
Sabu was an "elephant boy" - when Alexander Korda found him. His good looks & cheeky charm won Sabu the role & changed his life forever.
Sadly for Korda & Hollywood - Sabu grew up & the film world could not accommodate an adult Sabu, but he continued to live in the USA with his wife & family.
Thanks to his few films, cheeky, charming Sabu will outlive us all.
This edition of 'Elephant Boy' from the UK is the only available on DVD, to my knowledge. The print used for the DVD could benefit from restoration, for sound particularly. The back packaging says "Outstanding African wildlife photography... " I seem to recall that India is in Asia, not Africa. Did plate tectonics move it there while I wasn't looking? Despite these minor typographical errors and shortcomings of this release by the Network company, my hats off to them in gratitude for making this wonderful, historic, and charming film available.
