Storyline

After World War II, ex-soldiers trickle into French Saigon to join the Foreign Legion, among them American Whit Corbett and German Carl Reicher. Is Reicher really SS war criminal Martin Bruner, and is Corbett after him? Art dealer Van Ratten and nightclub chanteuse Lili Maubert are also more than they seem. Action scenes include anti-guerilla jungle warfare. Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

Throughout the film former SS-members are depicted as having a large black tattoo on their left arm.The tattoo spells the letters SS.However this is incorrect since the SS members only had their blood type tattooed on the underside of their left arm.The tattoo generally measured around 0.28 inches and was placed 8 inches above the elbow.

Dick Powell tracks down Nazi Stephen McNally
20 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I concur with the IMDb rating on this one. I'd give it 6.5 if I could. This is a good, solid, suspenseful, and nicely-photographed film that holds one's attention. The director, Robert Florey, typically does good work.

"Rogues' Regiment" has quite a bit of noir photography in the exotic setting of Vietnam in the late 40s. It's a war setting in which the Viet Minh are fighting against the French occupiers by using guerilla ambush tactics. The story is a detective story, however, within this setting. There is a war battle sequence, an ambush, but it's subordinate or a subplot to the main story. The Rogues' regiment refers to a group of ex-German soldiers who have joined the French Foreign Legion.

The man doing the detecting, the hero, is Dick Powell. He's looking for a Nazi war criminal, Stephen McNally, who escaped, but he has almost no clues. He doesn't even know what the man looks like. Powell joins the Legion to do his undercover work. Vincent Price has a good role as a German sympathizer who supplies guns to the Viet Minh. He helps out McNally at the outset. Marta Toren plays a French spy and Powell's love interest. She sings two songs.

A good Universal production.
