Academy Award(r) winner Anthony Quinn gives one of his best performances as Lieutenant Colonel PierreRaspeguy, a hardheaded officer determined to become a hero at any cost in this dramatic war saga. After Lt. Col. Raspeguy leads his defeated and humiliated French army out of Indochina, he learns that he's been relieved of his command. He gets another chance to prove himself when he meets and fallsin love with a French countess (Michele Morgan), who finagles a new position for him in Algeria. There, Lt. Col. Raspeguy persuades two wartime buddies to join him in shaping up a ragtag unit. Eventually he is forced to confront an Arab terrorist (George Segal) attempting to oust the French from Algeria. Now, in his desperate struggle to achieve victory, Lt. Col. Raspeguy launches a bloody battleagainst the terrorist rebel forces. With strong technical merit and outstanding performances throughout, LOST COMMAND vividly illustrates man's inhumanity to man... for the sake of personal glory.
This just another attempt by Hollywood, and ignorant/naive people to trash the French and other Europeans in Algeria. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Jan and Me
