BEAU GESTE (1939) B/W 120m dir: William A. Wellman

w/Gary Cooper, Ray Milland, Robert Preston, Brian Donlevy, J. Carroll Naish, Albert Dekker, Susan Hayward

Foreign Legion classic is brought to the screen with a superlative cast, and director Wellman brings off the set pieces with impressive flair. Cooper, Milland, and Preston are the brothers Geste, though the film is easily stolen by Donlevy's martinet and Naish's informer.
