A classic of the adventure genre. Creator/WilliamGoldman cites this film as one of his all-time favorites in the prologue to ''Literature/ThePrincessBride.''

Semi-remade as the 1962 [[TheWestern Western]] comedy ''Sergeants 3'', which recasts the main characters as U.S. Cavalry sergeants in the 1870s and stars the members of the {{Rat Pack}}.

It's the height of TheRaj, and telegraph wires are the most important tool in maintaining order and keeping everything shipshape. So when telegraph wires to a remote outpost have been sabotaged -- under mysterious circumstances, no less -- it's up to a troublemaking trio of officers to investigate. Although hot-blooded and perhaps impetuous, Cutter, [=McChesney=], and Ballantine are recognized for having a lot of smarts, plenty of courage, and a good gut instinct between them. So they're sent off in service of Queen and Country. But there's a time limit on this adventure, as Ballantine has to get married, and possibly end their camaraderie for good. So, obviously, Cutter and [=McChesney=] have to stop him!

* TheDandy: Ballantine, at least compared to his friends. They routinely rib him for it. Higgenbotham could also qualify, being even more prim and proper than Ballantine.

* PapaWolf: [=McChesney=] where Annie is concerned. When he thinks the Thugs have kidnapped her (actually it was Cutter and Din) he flies into a furious rant and rallies the troops, vowing to "breaking every Thug's back in India" if they've hurt his beloved elephant.
