CONSPIRACY NIGHT AT THE MOVIES: Bengal Brigade


Bengal Brigade (also known as Bengal Rifles) is a 1954 American adventure war film directed by Laslo Benedek and starring Rock Hudson, Arlene Dahl and Ursula Thiess.

Set in British India in 1857, at the outbreak of the Indian Mutiny. A British officer, Captain Claybourne (Hudson), is cashiered from his regiment over a charge of disobeying orders, but finds that his duty to his men is far from over.


Plot

A British captain (Rock Hudson) loves a colonel's daughter (Arlene Dahl) and redneems himself for leading a renegade sepoy charge.

A classic lesson on loyalty and treachery. The irony of going to war at Christmas is not lost. The teaching of Christ would preclude that, but it would also preclude stealing India in the first place. The western powers still subvert other nations and their resources to their own use. It has been a staple of empire. However, it was the power of the lie that the catridges were greased with animal fat that riled many to anger when in fact the issue was rectified. That is why we should resist the siren's song to violence. It would make a better movie and life.
