Synopsis by Hal Erickson

A novel by Pierre Nord was the basis for Captain Ardant. Yves Vincent plays the title character, a two-fisted Foreign Legionnaire. Hoping to save his outpost in Morocco from being overrun by marauding Arabs, Ardant tries to find out who's been running guns to the natives. Not only does this sound like a western, but it also plays the same way. Top-billed Renee St. Cyr seems out of place as leading lady, while some laughs are provided by comic sidekick (now it really looks like a western) Raymond Cordy. Technically, Captain Ardant is on the seedy side, though the final action sequences are worthwhile.
