Narrator represented gunga din as a british troop

This preview shows page 3 - 4 out of 4 pages.

narrator represented Gunga Din as a British troop, displaying him wearing the British army attire in the closing scenes. Although natives from India were portrayed as weak rebels throughout the film, Steven’s symbolized Gunga Din as the most courageous soldier, impacting the spectators’ thoughts and stereotypes towards Muslims. Gunga Din immediately influenced Hollywood as the director created enthusiasm to his spectators, through his unique methods of showing his imperialism throughout the film. Steven’s motion picture gained instant popularity and inspired many other directors, such as the Soldiers Three (1951) and Steven Spielberg’s admiring film, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984). George Steven’s continuous efforts to show his imperialistic views by making obvious stereotypes of neighboring countries ultimately convinces spectators to think differently among other cultures, as they are represented in the narrators point of view. This has become a problem that doesn’t seem to end anytime soon as directors continuously stereotype other areas of the world. Works Cited "Gunga Din (film)." Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia .

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
