Adventures and loves in the French Foreign Legion.
26 August 2011 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

Adventure movie cantered around a cheerful soldier in the French Foreign Legion "Sgt Victor "(Ronald Colman), who his immediate supervisor" JC Doyle "(Victor McLaglen), cordially detested and did not just decide between the love of a simple peasant and open" Cigarette "(Claudette Colbert) and a refined and aristocratic lady. This is the remake of the novel "Ouida" and adapted with remarkable success for the silent movies.

Director Frank Lloyd, offers us an entertaining film full of adventure and full of topics of the mythology of the French Foreign Legion, where we found a rival in love triangle between the three protagonists.
