Goofs

When Captain Gerard and Cara are sharing a meal on their journey she tells him "left hand, always" when he uses his right hand to pick up from the dish. This is totally incorrect. In the Middle East and parts of India the left hand is considered 'dirty' and is never used to pick up food. See more »

Quotes

Lieut. Glysko: As my late father would say, all women are unfair.
Capt. Paul Gerard: If they weren't, there'd be no Foreign Legion.

Good location, but that is all!
10 January 2007 | by dougandwinSee all my reviews

Let me start by saying this was not a "Beau Geste" by any means - it was set in Morocco and the locations looked very good, but that is the end of the "penny section!" I had always found George Raft to be completely wooden, and he proved it again in this one, but he did show me he was a very good dancer (clearly the highlight for him in this epic!). And well into his 50's when this was made took away any believability for him to be a romantic hero. The role, had it not been made on a shoe string, needed a Tyrone Power or a Errol Flynn to make it worthwhile. Marie Windsor looked like she wanted to be somewhere else, while Akim Tamiroff was clearly the best performer in the cast. Seeing Raft "act" makes me so glad to rejected the leads in "High Sierra" and "The Maltese Falcon" - had he not done so, they would not be genuine movie classics.
