Shades of Gunga Din and Lives of a Bengal Lancer as three soldiers of fortune (Cooper also being an army doctor) join a suicide mission to stamp out Moro terrorism in the Philippines in 1906. Dubious historically and politically, and inclined to overdo the heroism (especially when the colonel's daughter bravely joins the fight against cholera after refusing to leave for safety). But Hathaway is second to none at this sort of boy's own adventure. The action, virtually non-stop, is terrific.
