5000 men at Changi Prison... but only one could be KING!
Award-winning actor GEORGE SEGAL ignites the screen with his star-making performance in this epic World War II drama based on the best-selling novel by SHOGUN author JAMES CLAVELL. The movie chronicles the scams of a streetwise GI held in a Japanese prison camp. Under the harrowing camp conditions, he rises to a position of power over his military and social superiors, manipulating those around him and controlling the prison's black market. Co-starring TOM COURTENAY, JAMES FOX, DENHOLM ELLIOTT and nominated for two Academy Awards (1965 Best Art Direction Best Cinematography), KING RAT is a powerful exploration of one man's struggle to survive and flourish against all odds.
