All is plot and counterplot, hazard and heroics, and for grown-ups who have an affection for the more tender passions this plain and loveless tale from the hills is, despite its many qualifications, a trifle tedious. Full Review

A long, spotty but spectacular adventure, based on the Rudyard Kipling novel. Small boys, I notice, seem to relish it, and there are quite a few diverting moments for their elders, too. Full Review

The result is a talky film with too little action. Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:

The boy Kim knows how to scrounge up a hot meal in India's bustling cities, how to scamper catlike across rooftops, and disguise himself as a local and conceal his Anglo heritage. To Kim, these are just ways to be free. To colonial British intelligence, they're skills it knows will be useful when it makes Kim a spy.

Product Description:

Rudyard Kipling's 1901 tale of the horse trader and secret agent who introduces young Kim to the dangerous ways of espionage in 19th-century India.

Plot Synopsis:

This colorful adaptation of the Rudyard Kipling classic novel stars Errol Flynn as Mahbub Ali, and the young Dean Stockwell as the eponymous hero.
Kim, an orphaned boy, risks his life to spy for the British, gathering information about the Russian forces out to conquer India for the Tsar.
