Power King of Khyber Rifles.png

Tyrone Power costumed as Captain Alan King in 1953s King of the Khyber Rifles. The film was something of a remake of The Black Watch (1929) in which a half-caste officer (Power) must deal with racial prejudice, love, and rebellious tribesmen on India's North West Frontier in the mid-1800s.

The film was shot in the Owens Valley/Alabama Hills region of central California which has probably doubled for the North West Frontier/Khyber Pass region of India on film more than any other geographic region on Earth. It did so most famously in Gunga Din (1939)

Power wears a double clasp Crimean War campaign medal on his costume tunic.
