It's down to a local group of loyal soldiers to rescue him, led by Royalist cavalier, known as The Scarlet Blade.
In THE BRIGAND OF KANDAHAR, Oliver Reed continues his villainous streak in another Hammer historical adventure. The setting is the Indian desert, where the British army faces scorching temperatures and savage warrior, Reed playing Eli Khan, leader of some local bandits that come to the aid of a disgraced British officer.
