A comic book based on an pretty decent 1951 Burt ("I have pecs") Lancaster film. The movie also starred Jody Lawrence, Gilbert Roland, Kieron Moore, George Tobias, John Dehner, and Mike Mazurski, and Gerald Mohr -- all of whom may be unrecognizable in the somewhat stilted artwork in the comic book.
Sergeant Mike Kincaid of the Foreign Legion is in the stockade for (justly -- he is the hero, after all) striking an officer. There he learns of a planned attack on the Legion's fort. The Legion's main body of troops are away, so Mike finds himself in charge of a group of nine prisoners who must delay the invaders until reinforcements arrive. Think of this as a precursor to The Dirty Dozen.oy
A tale of courage, derring-do, and romance. Enjoy.
Well heck, now I want to see the movie.ReplyDelete
