(1939) Dandy adventure classic from the P.C. Wren story about three brothers, two of whom (Ray Milland and Robert Preston) follow the eldest (Gary Cooper) into the French Foreign Legion where they wind up in a Saharan outpost besieged by rebel Arabs and commanded by a sadistic sergeant (Brian Donlevy). Directed by William Wellman, this remake of the 1926 original retains the visual gusto of the silent’s action scenes while getting strong performances from a fine cast, making the talkie version a success in its own right. Stylized violence. (A-I -- general patronage) (Part of an all-day set of 13 films featuring Donlevy, beginning with 1935’s Another Face, 5-6:15 a.m., and ending with 1947’s Heaven Only Knows, Wednesday, Aug. 14, 3-5 a.m.) TMC (cable)
