Description by

A handsome young American, Otis Madison volunteers for the French Foreign Legion to fulfill an urgent, personal mission - to find his old, childhood playmate, John Geste, rescue him from the horrors of a military prison in the African desert and bring him home to his sweetheart Isobel (Lorettta Young). Thwarted by a fanatical force of Arab tribesmen, the unrelenting harshness of the scorching, desert sun, blinding sandstorms and forced marches, the American born legionnaire is undeterred from his heroic quest.

This tale of bravery and human endurance features spectacular battle scenes and desperate cavalry charges, while vast desert expanses contrast the opulent grandeur of the Emir's royal palace. Long-lost, this sequel continues the saga of Beau Geste - the 1926 epic starring Ronald Coleman and Victor McLaglen.

Product Description:

A young American man joins the foreign legion in hopes to find his captured childhood friend and return him to his beautiful lady in waiting.

A Little Less Than Ideal, But Not Terrible Movie Lover: from Walnut Creek, CA US -- January, 25, 2009

A massively expensive ($350,000) flop in its time, it's actually not bad viewing, once past the absurdly melodramatic opening. Music by Max Steiner.
