Never let timing get in the way of a good story. Queen Victoria is mentioned and shown as the reigning monarch dating the period to before her death. Yet, khaki service dress was not adopted until after the end of the second Anglo-Boer War more than a year later. While some units had used similar dress earlier, none was issued in Britain.

Sure, it's a little dated... it's already a period piece. Peter Lawford is "Captain Lenbridge", framed by a spy. He had just proposed to his girl, but all that is put on hold, and off to jail he goes. He re-enlists under a different name, and tries to make good. Lots of military action, planning and plotting. This one is very okay. Nothing too special. According to the card at the very end, this actually was filmed at the Khyber Pass, although it seems like going to an awful lot of trouble for a pretty ordinary scene. This one was made about halfway through Lawford's career. Directed by british Allan Davis. Looks like this was the first film he had directed. It's good, but not great. Shown now and then on Turner Classic.
