The picture was a spoof of Foreign Legion movies and the novel "Beau Geste" (1924) by Percival Christopher Wren, which had been made a number of times. The British "Carry On" series parodied all these about exactly a decade earlier with Carry on in the Legion (1967). See more »

I thoroughly enjoy this film & found it to be a hilarious surprise.
On accident, I picked up this oddly titled movie from the comedy section of my local video store, just hoping for a mildly entertaining flick for my boyfriend and I to sit down for the evening to. Now, it has proved itself to be one of our favorites. Marty Feldman was a great actor and I am continuously searching for more of his work. This movie is at the top of my list right next to The Producers.
