I am not sure I would agree it was one of the best ever but it sure was a good one.

There were so many similar movies made in the 30s about the British in India that I get them confused. I know there was at least one with Shirley Temple. They were all pretty good.

It’s Kipling.
Nobody could replace Kipling.

Just a little kid the first time I saw Gunga Din on TV and
it remains one of my all time favorites. At one time I
took the trouble to memorize the Kipling poem that the movie
was based on.

I think my favorite scene is when McChesney is going after the fly in the punch bowl.

I do believe that in one of “The Killer”s (Jerry Lee) songs, he sings, “Hangin’ in like Gunga Din”. I use that particular phrase a lot, myself.

It is a great film.
Kipling was one of a kind, and Hollywood got this one right.

Gunga Din was on Turner Movie Classics the other day -
think it was that station.
I’ll watch it over and over.

This time I fell asleep before it ended - not because of the movie.
It’s just that time of life where a nap comes easily sometimes - - -
Wonder what else I’m missing - - -

The baddies in that movie were the same as in indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom!

Kipling had some amazing insights.

My grandfather loved Kipling, and quoted his poetry all the time.

Just a fantastic movie. Eduardo Ciannelli as the thuggee cultist in the scene where he is bellowing ‘death, death death!’ is tremendous. One of the creepiest little scenes ever.

Didn’t Victor Mclaglen play in a bunch of John Wayne movies including ‘The Quiet Man’ in his latter years? Had never seen this one and liked it.

There is a Shirley Temple movie, “Wee Willie Winkie” although I am not sure of the spelling.

Victor plays Sergeant McDuff in a Scottish regiment in India. When Shirley sings “Auld Lang Syne” at the Sergeant’s funeral, my eyes teared up.

Great movie. It’s greatest limitation was the over-acting of the oddly-chosen cast. Which was also why it was a big hit.

Then they made Sergeants 3 with the Rat Pack. Same script.

I saw that one also. I think ‘The Quiet Man’ was one of Wayne’s best and Victor played a great role in it. If you saw it you had to notice the supporting actors were great. One of my favorite movies. Victor had a great sense of comedy I always thought. He played the same role in all his movies but I have always gotten a kick out of him.

I thought the bad guys were Muslims until someone told me different. I was surprised that there really was a cult of Thugees.

Kipling is much maligned (unfairly IMHO ) in the academic community as a racist colonial oppressor apologist. Shows how truly shallow those people are

Kipling in my estimation had a keen eye for the human condition.
