Movie Reviews

Mediocre Foreign Legion tale
Patrick F. Conolly | Pflugerville, TX United States | 10/16/2006
(3 out of 5 stars)

"... and I don't mean mediocre by today's standards. I've recently watched a number of films from 1930/1931 and the dialog in this is absurd. As is the delivery. Another strike against it is that prominently billed Loretta Young is only seen for a few minutes, less than the other attractive lady Leni Stengel.
Plot-wise, the beginning to it was effective in grabbing your interest (why are those poor devils in the sunken pit, and why haven't they been given food and water?), and the ending action was somewhat effective. And I enjoyed the resolution between the American and the dancing girl, in spite of the poor dialog.
The Alpha Video DVD is a little rough print-wise and sound-wise, but not enough to interfere with the viewing experience - about halfway between a Madacy video and a proper restoration."

"Interesting Beau Geste story. The Alpha print is not that great on this one. The picture is acceptable, but the soundtrack has a number of dropouts throughout with bits and pieces of the soundtrack missing."
