Synopsis

In the thirties and forties, the Indian actor known as Sabu (born Selar Shaik) captured the hearts of moviegoers in Britain and the United States as a completely new kind of big-screen icon. Sabu was a maharaja's elephant driver when he was discovered by documentary trailblazer Robert Flaherty who cast him as the lead in Elephant Boy, a Kipling adaptation Flaherty directed with Zoltan Korda that would prove to be enormously popular. Sabu went on to headline a series of fantasies and adventures, transcending the exoticism projected onto him by commanding the screen with effortless grace and humor. This series collects three of the lavish productions Sabu starred in for the British film titans the Korda brothers: Elephant Boy, the colonialist battle adventure The Drum, and the timeless Jungle Book.

 

Elephant Boy: As Kipling's Toomai of the Elephants, Sabu storms the jungle with his pachyderm pal - instantly becoming a legend. 

 

The Drum: In this action-packed Technicolor epic, a young prince goes into hiding with colonial forces after his nefarious uncle murder his maharaja father.

 

Jungle Book: Kipling's classic menagerie comes to dazzling life in this lush adaptation, featuring Sabu as the quintessential Mowgli.
