Welcome to Reel Britannia-a very British podcast about very British movies ...with just a hint of professionalism.
This week, Scott and Steven take a look at an all action fifties adventure starring Kenneth More, Lauren Bacall, Herbert Lom and Wilfred Hyde-White
Join us we chat about North West Frontier (1959) directed by J Lee Thompson
In British-controlled India just after the turn of the 20th century, an English captain (Kenneth More) is asked to escort a maharajah's son out of town after an uprising by Muslim factions threatens the boy's life. As the captain sneaks the boy away with his governess (Lauren Bacall), danger seems to be all around. After another attack by rebels, the trio and a group of others -- including a journalist and an arms dealer -- secretly board an old train to try to escape to safety.
“The British never seem to do anything until they've had a cup of tea, By which time it's too late”
