“One of John Guillermin’s best” may not sound like much of a recommendation to those who know him for THE TOWERING INFERNO or his two KING KONG monstermeanors, but GUNS AT BATASI is pretty gripping stuff, with PEEPING TOM’S Leo Marks among its writers. And it’s one of Graham Stark’s few action cinema roles (top, right).

The latest Forgotten By Fox.

KING OF THE KHYBER RIFLES stars Leonard Vole; Marie Buckholder; Klaatu; Ahmad; Mr. Sardonicus; Coplan; Inspector Mole; Moleface; Mrs. Martini; and Bhisma’s helper.
