"The Man Who Would Be King" is an entertainig epic tale of two British army buddies looking to create their own kingdom far away in Kafiristan. The film has great acting from Sean Connery and Michael Caine and the film really drags you into the adventure from beginning to end. Definately one of the best classic films, and one of the many great films from Director John Huston.
