Originally made as a silent film, music and sound effects were then added using the Movietone system. It was intended as a parody of Foreign Legion films such as Beau Geste. However, this drew some criticism for its mockery of the Foreign Legion, which an observer compared to the British Guards Regiments as being above parody.[2]


Two former American doughboys return to Paris after ten years for an American Legion convention. However, due to a mistake, they end up joining the French Foreign Legion. While serving in North Africa they rescue a General's daughter from a harem.
