The Brigand of Kandahar

Minor 'Cinema of Empire' episode from the erratic Gilling, who found his happiest niche with Hammer (who produced this) but in their horror mode. India in 1850 provides the backdrop (supposedly, at least, since papier mâché rocks and rural England are much in evidence) for a routine military adventure, with a half-caste officer (Lewis) facing court-martial for cowardice as the natives indicate their restlessness in time-honoured style.
