| Cutesy Shirley Temple set in the North West Frontier of India
A widow (June Lang) and her young daughter (Shirley Temple) arrive in the Indian North West Frontier to stay with her Britsh uncle father-in-law (C. Aubrey Smith), a colonel in the British Army. The young girl soon makes a positive impression on all those she comes into contact with, including the warring Khan (Cesar Romero).

Apparently "inspired" by a Rudyard Kipling, this colonial family film is one of Temple's best vehicles and most charming films, surprising from macho director John Ford who didn't like working with children. Ford regular McLaglen and Temple work particularly well together. There's plenty of action too, even if some of the film's politics are somewhat dubious.
