“When we’re done with you, you’ll be able to stand up and slaughter your enemies like civilized men.”
Actor Sean Connery in a scene from the movie “The Man Who Would be King.”
Sean Connery was one of my favorite actors and “The Man Who Would Be King,” starring Connery, Michael Caine, and Christopher Plummer, is one of my favorite Sean Connery movies.The movie is an adaptation of the famous short story by Rudyard Kipling that tells the story of Daniel Dravot (Connery) and Danny “Peachy” Carnahan (Caine), two ex-soldiers in India when it was under British rule. They decide to seek their fame and fortune by heading off to Kafiristan in order to become kings in their own right. Kipling (Plummer) is seen as a character that was there at the beginning and at the end of this fascinating tale.
I just happened to watch it again this weekend and it is just as entertaining as ever. If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend it.
