Cast & Crew
The Kipling adventure classic about colonial India and the resourceful British youngster who was raised in the streets as a native and is recruited as a spy for the British Secret Service, gets a colorful re-telling in this rousing remake of the 1950 movie that starred Errol Flynn, Dean Stockwell and Paul Lukas. In the comparable roles are Australian actor Bryan Brown; Milwaukee-born teenager Ravi Sheth (who has lived in Bombay since the age of 2 with his Indian father and American mother), making his acting debut in the title role; and Peter O'Toole, in a bizarre bit of casting, as a somewhat outrageous Buddhist monk. An earlier TV version of "Kim" on "The Shirley Temple Theatre" in 1960, starred Michael Rennie, Joseph Wiseman and Tony Haig as young Kim.
