The Man Who Would Be King

I found this at the weekend in a sale for peanuts and, as I think it's a cracking film, I had no hesitation in grabbing copy. I'm surprised I didn't have it already but, now that I do, I'm going to save it for a late night weekend when I have no school work to do and can put my feet up. I'm deep in a pile of Year 9 exercise books this evening, marking essays on the failure of the Schlieffen Plan, so at least I now have something to look forward to!


  1. How long have your students been back to have written essays on the Schlieffen Plan already?

  2. Super stuff!
    "He wants to know if you are gods..."
    "Not Gods... Englishmen...the next best thing."

  3. You know, I've never seen the whole film! I just keep catching the end of it so maybe it's time I ordered a copy!?

    Thanks for the reminder Jim, I might very well follow my own advice today :>)


  4. A splendid film, you have, of course seen these fabulous miniatures?

  5. As they travel from east to west,i it`s the craft! Terrific Epic. Tragic ending. Beano Boy
