The British Empire is once more saved from bloodthirsty "heathens" in Emerald of the East. Joshua Keen plays dashing Lt. Desmond Armstrong of His Majesty's Forces in India. Armstrong befriends a maharajah (Jean de Kuharski) loyal to Mother England. When insurrectionists threaten to topple the maharajah from his throne, the lieutenant rescues the potentate and fights off the savages. Oddly enough, this doggedly politically incorrect entertainment was based on a novel by an Indian author (Jerbanu Kothawala).
