Academy Award winners Sean Connery and Michael Caine star in director John Huston's sweeping homage to adventure movies--The Man Who Would Be King. Author Rudyard Kipling (Chistopher Plummer) tells this tale of two men in search of fame and fortune: Daniel Dravot (Connery) and Peachy Carnehan (Caine) set out on a quest that takes them on a series of adventures leading to the remote mountains of Afghanistan, high at the top of the world. The local people mistake the two Englishmen for Gods and Kings because of their ferocity and prowess in battle, a mistake that brings power and wealth to the two. But Dravot begins to believe he actually is a reincarnation of Alexander the Great, a belief that leads to the downfall of Dravot and Carnehan when their subjects realize they are mortals.
