In this feature-length abridgment of the 1933 serial The Three Musketeers (1933), three Foreign Legionnaires (Clancy, Renard, and Schmidt) who refer to themselves in song and banter as the Three Musketeers fight renegade Arab forces under the mysterious El Shaitan. Rescued from a surrounding force by army pilot Tom Wayne, they support Wayne as he tries to uncover the identity of El Shaitan, who is smuggling guns into Algeria in hopes of creating a full-scale revolution. Only by going undercover as a member of the Devil's Circle can Wayne learn the secret of El Shaitan's identity.Written by

The film "Desert Command" is a condensed version of the 1933 serial "The Three Musketeers". I believe that it would be better to watch the entire serial than this edited version but this film will give you get jest of of it. It's merely "okay". I think it needed more of the serial added to the edited film version to make it better - a few things are missing to get a better story out of it.
I enjoyed this film to a degree, it's great to see the actors in something different. It's just the story that is lacking along with better editing to make this film more enjoyable.
Watch if you are a die hard John Wayne or Lon Chaney fan.
