Movie Info

This silent romantic adventure is set in the Sahara desert, and purports to be a sequel to the successful Beau Geste. Like the first, it is based on a story by Christopher Wren and features members from the original cast. The story begins as three Legionnaires do not return promptly from furlough and end up in the poky. There, the hero duels with a traitor and wins, causing him to gain the designation "Beau Sabreur." Later he is sent into the desert to learn the ways of the Arabs and to help forge a peace treaty. There he encounters a lovely American journalist. Meanwhile the defeated traitor tries to stop the treaty from going through. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Beau Sabreur

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (2)

It may not have that ingenious suspense that dominated Beau Geste, but it is not a film that one cares to turn away from, not even for the fraction of a second. Excellent direction, thoughtful casting and fine acting are contained in this offering.

This tale is far under the horsepower of which Geste could boast.

September 18, 2020 | Full Review…

Although Beau Sabreur is announced as a sequel to Beau Geste, it is no more than a pallid counterfeit of Herbert Brenon's stalwart melodrama.

October 4, 2021 | Full Review…

Gary Cooper, Evelyn Brent, Noah Beery and that veteran old renegade, William Powell, go through the necessary motions without, believe it or not, any tremendous effect.

Those who have been waiting in expectation of seeing a fitting sequel to Beau Geste are sure to be disappointed here. The intention may have been good to equal it or surpass it, but the story simply isn't there.

The plot works up to a thrilling climax.
