Even the gypsies don't know
4 September 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Bandits Of Corsica is a sequel to the Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. classic The Corsican Brothers where Fairbanks played a pair of noble Siamese twins separated at birth and brought up separately to conceal their identities. At the conclusion of the Fairbanks film one had died and the other had saved the day and won Ruth Warrick and inherited the family estate.

I was looking forward to seeing a sequel as I had enjoyed The Corsican Brothers, but the premise was preposterous. Douglas Fairbanks,Jr. looked good and dead to me, but we find out that he did not really die. The twin roles now taken by Richard Greene has the dead twin unconscious for a long time and then waking up with no memory and now living with the gypsies. But the gypsies don't even know who their Greene really is.

I mean really. The only ones who had resurrections like these are the Universal monsters like Frankenstein, the Wolfman, etc.

In the meantime Corsica is facing a new tyrant. Raymond Burr with his aide and nephew Lee Van Cleef is bidding to take over the island and he'd like a governor generalship from the king. Burr and Van Cleef as always are excellent villains.

All I can say is preposterous premise.
