I'm confused. The Kwai River is in Thailand, yet both this quiz and Wikipedia say that The Bridge on the River Kwai was set in Burma. Yes, it's close to the Burmese border, and perhaps the border was not the same in the 1940s as it is today, but the setting for the film is in present-day Thailand.

Movie was set in a Japanese prisoner of war camp in Burma. The bridge itself is in Thailand. The railway was the Burma Railway

The bridge is well inside Thailand. There's a regular tourist train trip to the site you can do from Bangkok.

I thought the same thing. I've actually been to the museum where the camp was, and took a train over the completed bridge... IN THAILAND.

How can you forget a movie the American film makers "dedicated to the gallant people of Afghanistan"? That end credit always cracks me up

I always thought the Jungle Book was set in the DR Congo

My mind was blank so I thought about the animals in the Jungle Book. I know Baloo is a sloth bear and they're found mostly in India. Then I remembered Mowgli is an Indian name.

Besides the name Mowgli: it was written by Rudyard Kipling, features both a sloth bear and a tiger, and frequently mentions Seoni (spelled Seeonee in the book) - it all adds up to India.

To me it was always pretty clearly an indian boy, he doesnt look african at all.

and how is mowgli an indian name? Kipling made it up (perhaps now it people use the name he created for the story?)
