Wilella Waldorf New York Post For these scenes In the desert alone Beau Geste is worth a visit to the [theater]. It is good entertainment. Sep 22, 2020 Full Review Robert E. Sherwood LIFE If Beau Geste is weak at times, it is because of too much plot. Pictorially and dramatically it is superb. Oct 6, 2021 Full Review Pamela Hutchinson Silent London It's ridiculous, but Herbert Brenon has a winning way with the spectacular set pieces that the story demands. And the scenes are always stolen by the supporting cast. Apr 21, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews
