Always Interesting Film To Watch
Douglas/Basil make interesting siblings,Barb & Virginia their equally interesting spouses.John originally reluctant to join the service,but ends up distinguishing himself after initially messing up.Clive truly great Civil Service of the Empire.Clearly seems to indicate a Lord Haw Haw or dictator type in Atwill's character and his travelling band of goons.
Baz And The Empire
Good pic,would be better w/o the dang ants,what did they really signify.Baz/Barb have chemistry.Baz's film,no matter if Doug given #1 billing.He's a little twerp until the climax.
I'd Walk A Mile To See Baz In Those Shorts
The only drag of this film is the trash about the ants.They could've found another cover for Atwill's sleazy villain.Loved Basil & Barbara,good chem,but Babs has so little to show her talent.Vinnie Price was supposed to be John,but Dougie took over,and thanks for that.He does well,too!
Needs to be more readily seen,only seen it on TCM,Atwill a slime,but Baz,Barb,Doug great for the Brit Empire.Good chem Baz and Barb,but he's my hunkyhoney
Bugs,Baz,Barb and African Heat
Love Rathbone in those shorts.Baz and Barb,need any more be said?
Love the sentiment of this film.In my opinion,needs regular viewing.Love the older married couple of Baz and Barb!It is his film,and he's great.Love the backstage photos of Baz and Barb visiting with the goat!
Basil is hot, too!

Basil, Douglas, Barbara, Lionel excellent. Good entertainment, could do without the ants.
Don't Forget This Fine Old Classic!

Made in the waning years of the British Empire just before WWII, this film is a fun romp in the style (and with some of the same cast) of Gunga Din. Probably not very politically correct, it is another showcase for great one-of-a-kind talents of Douglas Fairbanks,Jr (rivals today's late Heath Ledger in those British military uniforms: what a 1939 hottie!) and a non-Sherlock Holmes, non-villainous Basil Rathbone. Great fun on a Saturday afternoon! Wish it was on DVD; it would be a keeper.
