Stiff Upper Lips, Italian Style

Lieutenant Mario Ludovic (Antonio Centa) , and army officer, gets himself transferred to a Libyan post when his romance with society girl Christiana (Fulvia Lanzi)goes on the rocks.

Ludovic is looked upon as a weakling by Captain Santeliz (Fosco Giachetti), the hard-boiled commander of the troops, but after a bitter campaign against a rebel tribe Ludovic proves his true worth and returns as commander when Santeliz is mortally wounded.

Christinia arrives and tries to entice him to return to Rome, but he decides to stay in Africa with the army.

Shown in the U.S. in December, 1939 at NYC's Cinecitta Theatre, with Italian dialogue and no English titles. "The White Squadron" was a reviewers' translation only of the Italian title and was not used as an alternate title (on the film), since the film played in the U.S. under the original title
