King of the Khyber Rifles location: The rocky landscape of the Alabama Hills, Lone Pine, central California
Tyrone Power is the conflicted, half-Indian officer with the Khyber Rifles, pitched against his step-brother in this standard cinemascope adventure.
Once again, the rocky landscape of the Alabama Hills, west of Lone Pine on Route 395, central California is drafted in to represent India’s Khyber Pass, with the snow-topped Sierra Nevadas as the ‘Himalayas’.
