|Tyrone Power costumed as Captain Alan King in King of the Khyber Rifles. The film was something of a remake of
The Black Watch (1929) in which a half-caste officer (Power) must deal with racial prejudice, love and rebellious
tribesmen on India's North West Frontier in the mid 1800's.
The film was shot in the Owens Valley/Alabama Hills region of central California which has probably doubled for
the North West Frontier/Khyber Pass region of India more that any other geographic region on Earth. It did so
most famously in Gunga Din (1939)
Power wears a double clasp Crimean War campaign medal on his costume tunic.
