Description by OLDIES.com:
Baker (Academy Award nominee Anthony Quayle, 1969, Best Supporting Actor, Anne of the Thousand Days), a private in the British army during the 1880s, finds himself in the middle of Barash while it is under siege by Mahdi forces. Finding a boat to escape, he brings fellow soldier Murchison (Derek Fowlds, TV's "Yes Minister"), a governess (Sylvia Sims, The Queen) and the daughter of an emir (Jenny Agutter, Logan's Run). Traveling down the treacherous Nile River to Khartoum, the foursome encounters wild animals, dangerous traders and menacing tribesmen. Newly remastered
In this adventure, set in 19th-century India when the British were attempting to stop the slave trade against the Sudanese Moslems, a brave trooper and a new lieutenant must help a governess and her charge get to safety. The two soldiers despise each other. The experienced trooper has little tolerance for the naive bumblings of the lieutenant. As they travel, they encounter a variety of adventures including bouts with wild animals, dangerous geography, and Moslem guerrillas. The two men begin to respect each other. The older soldier also falls in love with the governess. Eventually, the rag tag travelers end up blowing an arsenal sky-high and rescuing several British soldiers.
