THE MAN WHO WOULD BE KING, 1975, Warner Bros., 129 min. Director John Huston adapts Rudyard Kipling’s fable. Ex-soldiers Michael Caine and Sean Connery trek to far-off Kafiristan to set-up their own kingdom, pulling it off with outlandish lies and sheer nerve. But their arrogance has a price. With Christopher Plummer, Saeed Jaffrey. <br><br> DAMN THE DEFIANT, 1962, Sony Repertory, 101 min. Lewis Gilbert (<i>Alfie</i>) directs this adventure that has the intense character study of <i>Billy Budd</i> and the epic sea battles of <i>Captain Horatio Hornblower.</i> Alec Guinness, Captain of HMS Defiant, is sabotaged by sadistic First Lieutenant Dirk Bogarde who stokes the fire of a mutinous crew press-ganged into service during the war with France. Flawlessly acted, with expertly orchestrated naval combat.
