This movie is based on the Rudyard Kipling classic about a young Indian boy who helps the British Army. In one scene Kim is leading a Tibetan holy man who begins to walk across a creek on some stepping stones. Kim stops him telling him there's a King Cobra in the way and we see a cobra raised and hoodied on a rock next to the stones. Kim picks up a rock to kill it but the priest stops him and walks up to the snake and talks to it. He then crosses and finally convinces Kim that he can cross without the snake hurting him. After this "miracle of the cobra" Kim believes the priest to have great powers. The cobra appears to be real in one shot, but it's not a King Cobra, it's a different species. But when the priest talks to it, it lowers itself on cue, which must have been done with a fake snake.
