Last Remake of Beau Geste
Marty Feldman writes, directs and stars in this parody of the French Foreign Legion adventure films based on the novel by P.C. Wren. When a priceless family heirloom goes missing, Sir Hector Geste (Trevor Howard)'s adopted twin sons - the weedy, pathetic Digby (Feldman) and his (not so) identical twin brother, dashing swashbuckler Beau (Michael York) - must gallivant across Europe and North Africa to keep it from the clutches of their wicked stepmother, Flavia (Ann-Margret). The all-star supporting cast includes Peter Ustinov, Terry-Thomas, Spike Milligan and Roy Kinnear.
