Man Who Would Be King, The
The Man Who Would Be King is a 1975 feature film adaptation of the 1888 Rudyard Kipling short story. Directed by John Huston, the film is set in late 19th century India and follows Peachy Carnehan (Michael Caine) and Danny Dravot (Sean Connery), two rowdy former NCOs of the British Raj, who decide to cross the border through the Khyber Pass into the region of Kafiristan in Afghanistan to become kings and get rich.
The following weapons were used in the film The Man Who Would Be King:
Danny Dravot (Sean Connery) and Peachy Carnehan (Michael Caine) smuggle 20 Martini-Henry rifles in order to fight their way to power when they get to Kafiristan. The rifles are later issued to 20 soldiers of Danny and Peachy's newly trained army.
Muskets are carried by the locals in India and later in particular by a group of travelers who try to rob Danny Dravot (Sean Connery) and Peachy Carnehan (Michael Caine).
Peachy spits a .450-577 cartridge he put into his mouth earlier into the campfire, which goes off- giving Peachy and Danny a chance to jump the strangers.
