Mohammed Ahmed believed he was the Mahdi because he had a space between his teeth. Good movies on this are Khartoum and The Four Feathers. Check out the old Colonel in The Four Feathers. He was the basis for Commander McBragg.

Thanks, I just added Khartoum to my Netflix queue (love the old epics). I'll pass on 4 Feathers because of negative feedback from people who have seen it.

Yet another Mahdi?
