We're in the Legion Now stars two veterans of the silent screen, Reginald Denny and Esther Ralston, both of whom were old enough to know better. Denny and comedian Vince Barnett play Dan and Spike, a couple of American gangsters who use the Foreign Legion as a hideout. Amazingly, the two crooks end up as heroes by blowing up an enemy garrison -- or perhaps it's not so amazing, since they utilize mob tactics to pull off this act of bravado. Though billed second, Esther Ralston has relatively little to do in comparison to the film's other leading ladies Eleanor Hunt and Claudia Dell (both graduates of the "B"-western mills). The film's only distinction is that it was shot in Hirlacolor, an inexpensive but eye-pleasing color process named in honor of producer George A. Hirliman (most existing prints are in black and white).
