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. Like GUNGA DIN, CAPTAINS COURAGEOUS and THE MAN WHO WOULD BE KING, KIM belongs to the treasury of films based on Kipling works. Dean Stockwell, then just five years into a career stretching from the 1940s into the 21st century, plays the title role. And Errol Flynn is Red Beard, Kim's protector and a key operative in espionage activities that spies call "the Great Game". It's all great Kiplingesque advneture.
