Based on the novel by James Clavell, King Rat deals with a group of allied prisoners incarcerated in the infamous Japanese-run Changi POW camp in Singapore during World War II. In the camp, an American corporal (George Segal) with a genius for hustling does whatever he can -- including bribing guards -- to live as comfortably as possible, even at the expense of his fellow prisoners. Tom Courtenay, Patrick O'Neal and James Fox co-star.
