      kevin w Another in the line of Hollywood "long live the colonial empire!" movies, this one takes aging George Raft as a "company man who likes the ladies", only the company here is the French Foreign Legion in north Africa working to quell the insurgent rebels - Arabs - and keep them in line for their own good. Luckily the rebel leader's daughter (Marie Windsor) fills in errant downtime nicely. There's a calvary charge that's rousing at the last but it's too little. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member An adventure film that's not without its moments. At nearly 50, George Raft was way too old for this part though! Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member another french foreign legion tale Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member George Raft is badly cast as Capt. Gerard, the greatest lover in the Foreign Legion, is assigned to escort an emir's daughter to her father's mountain citadel and find out what he can about the emir's activities. Sadly Raft is void of emotion throughout the film, almost to the point of being laughable, although at the latter end of the film he relaxes a little. He is just not suited to the role, Some of the acting in the beginning is poor, and at time's the script and music give it a comedy feel. Raft falls in love with with the The Emir's daughter, causing problems, and a lot of deaths, real legionnaires were used in the film, some ex german soldiers who surrendered and joined, For me the film flows poorly, bad casting, bad acting, and a poor ending, It's hard to think that Raft was once a dancer and lover of Valentino, yet on screen his acting talents were limited, Marie Windsor, Akim Tamiroff however were excellent throughout.
