Brand New 4K Master! From Henry Hathaway, the renowned director of The Shepherd of the Hills, The House on 92nd Street, Kiss of Death, Rawhide, 23 Paces to Baker Street and True Grit, comes this action-packed adventure starring screen icon Gary Cooper (Bluebeard’s Eighth Wife, Beau Geste). The Lives of a Bengal Lancer is the thrilling tale of the heroic men who guarded the British Empire’s perilous Khyber Pass in India. Surly McGregor (Cooper) and wry, blue-blooded Forsythe (Franchot Tone, Phantom Lady) are officers in charge of newcomer Lieutenant Stone (Richard Cromwell, Baby Face Morgan), the commanding officer’s inexperienced son. Motivated by a grudge toward his father, Colonel Stone (Sir Guy Standing, Death Takes a Holiday), Lt. Stone allows himself to be captured by the enemy. Foiled in a daring rescue attempt, McGregor and Forsythe face ruthless torture for military secrets until they escape into the film’s most splendid battle, where Stone becomes an unlikely hero. Featuring stunning cinematography by the great Charles Lang (A Farewell to Arms) and a strong supporting cast that includes C. Aubrey Smith (The Hurricane), Akim Tamiroff (The General Died at Dawn) and J. Carrol Naish (Joan of Arc), The Lives of a Bengal Lancer won 2 separate Best Assistant Director Oscars for Clem Beauchamp and Paul Wing, and was nominated for 6 more Oscars, including Best Picture, Director, Screenplay and Editing.
