Preview: The Drum (1938) DVD

Alongside Sanders of the River and The Four Feathers, this rip-roaring Technicolor adventure completes what became known as Alexander Korda’s ‘Empire trilogy’, made by London Films in the late 1930s.

An unabashed celebration of the British Raj, The Drum made a star of Sabu, the young Indian actor who was to become a firm favourite in both British and American films over the coming decade. Also starring Roger Livesey as an Army captain working undercover to monitor arms smuggling and featuring a brilliantly malevolent performance from Oscar nominee Raymond Massey as a murderous royal usurper intent on fomenting rebellion, The Drum is featured here in a brand-new transfer from original film elements, in its original theatrical aspect ratio.
