Storyline

Fernand Espitalion is miserable as totally whipped husband of a dragon 'passed on' -like cloths- by his late cousin. She often leaves him waiting outside like a dog when she does business. While she sees a notary about an inheritance, he's seduced to a bar by a shady man. The rogue gets Fernand drunk, knocks him out and switches costumes and papers. He's now Robert Durand, a voluntary Foreign legion recruit. After failed attempts to explain, he tastes military life and finds it less disciplined and more enjoyable then, marriage. But will that last when his wife tracks him and his unit is sent to action in tribal Algeria? Written by KGF Vissers

Graham Greene
16 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Graham Greene gave it a pretty good review in the Spectator 11 August 1939. See pages 318-21 of The Graham Greene Film Reader. . . edited by David Parkinson. He compared this to the famous 1939 Beau Geste, which he considered vile sentimental rubbish. This Film Reader contained priceless comments for anyone who is serious about literature, history or cinema. Graham Greene feels that pandering has been beaten to death long before 1939 and that romantic schmaltz and sentimental rubbish is still trash even if beautifully accomplished. Unlike some organizations, his publishers let him write very brief reviews like Pauline Kael's capsules for her Cinema Guild. Some people have never heard "Many words are weariness."
