Although the film was not a cinema success the theme tune, by Angelo Francesco Lavagnino, became a successful hit after being covered by Ken Thorne and his orchestra, reaching number 4 in the UK charts in July 1963. See more »
Although I was only Four when I saw this I have never forgotten the premise or the last scenes and I hope to find it and see it again. A wonderful action adventure with believable characters, unlike The Green Berets, which I am sure ripped off the story. Actually, it seems a great irony that the story of Marcia o crepa portrays France's end days of Algerian Colonization realistically, while the Green Berets show America's failure in Viet Nam with such heroically, naive shlock.
Anyone who can tell me where I can find a VHS or DVD please write me.
