Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 80 ratings.
Gunga Din is one of Rudyard Kiplings most celebrated poems. This movie classic does it justice. Cary Grant, Victor McLaglen and Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. are the happy-go-lucky Britsh "three musketeers", serving in India. And the venerable Sam Jaffe (remember Dr. Zorba, on the TV series Ben Casey?) is magnificently endearing as the not-to-bright, crippled, eager soldier wanna-be, waterboy Gunga Din. With Eduardo Cianelli as a deliciously evil fanatic leader, the movie only gets better and better until its magnificent battle climax and heart-rending tribute to the heroic Din; and to Kipling's work, as he travelled across India with Her Majesty's soldiers, writing about all he saw. This is a classic must-see for the whole family.
