The Man Who Would Be King
Director: John Huston
1975 / 129 minutes / English
This adaptation of the famous short story by Rudyard Kipling tells the story of Daniel Dravot and Peachy Carnahan, two ex-soldiers in India when it was under British rule. They decide that the country is too small for them, so they head off to Kafiristan in order to become Kings in their own right.

The International Film Series is sponsored by the School of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures, the Graduate School, the College of Arts and Humanities, the Center for Literature and Comparative Studies, and the Department of English.
