Posted Thu Mar 22, 2012 at 10:00 AM PDT by

J. Lee Thompson's 1959 action/adventure also known as 'The North West Frontier' is slated for Blu-ray in June.

In an early announcement to retailers, VCI will be bringing 'Flame Over India' featuring Kenneth More, Lauren Bacall and Herbert Lom to Blu-ray on June 3.

It is the North West Frontier of India at the turn of the century. Captain Scott (More) is sent by the British Governor to rescue a five-year-old Prince and his American Governess, Catherine Wyatt (Bacall), when a rebellion breaks out amongst the tribesmen. Scott is instructed to take the child to safety in Kalapur, which is 300 miles away, on the pretext that while he is alive, no rebellion can succeed. They are forced to travel on an old and fragile train, but it soon becomes clear that the danger from the train is the least of their worries. Someone on the train is trying to kill the Prince.

Specs and supplements have yet to be revealed, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $19.99.
