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.

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.
