High adventure, a story of friendship and pride, and the best performance of Sean Connery's long and distinguished career (not to mention his favorite role) - The Man Who Would Be King has all of this and more.


Based on the novella by Rudyard Kipling, The Man Who Would Be King was a movie that director John Huston had tried to make for almost 25 years.  Huston read Kipling's work devotedly as a kid, particularly when he was bedridden (Huston suffered from an enlarged heart and problems with his kidneys), and making this film was a dream project of his.  He had originally planned to cast Humphrey Bogart and Clark Gable in the two lead roles (as British soldiers, mind you).  As time went on and Bogart and Gable passed away, other actor pairings were considered: Kirk Douglas and Burt Lancaster, Richard Burton and Peter O'Toole, and Robert Redford and Paul Newman.  Newman reportedly was the one who persuaded Huston to go with a British cast, and thus we ended up with Sean Connery and Michael Caine.
