Sexy Denise Darcel is the Flame of Calcutta in this Columbia programmer. Set in 18th-century India, the film stars Darcel as Suzanne Roget, daughter of a murdered French official. To avenge her father's murder and bring down a usurping Indian prince (George Keymas), Suzanne adopts the guise of a guerilla leader known only as "The Flame." She is aided and abetted by sympathetic British army officer Keith Lambert (Patric Knowles). As was customary in the films produced by quickie king Sam Katzman, a goodly portion of Flame of Calcutta consists of stock footage from earlier Technicolor swashbucklers.
