Ten Tall Men 1951 Burt Lancaster Action Adventure
Stars: Burt Lancaster, Jody Lawrance, Gilbert Roland
French Foreign Legion Sgt. Mike Kincaid learns, from a Riff prisoner, that an attack will soon be made by the villainous Hussin on the Legion’s outpost of Tarfa. Kincaid volunteers to lead nine other Legionnaires on a mission to delay Hussin’s attack until reinforcements arrive. When he discovers that Hussin plans to marry Mahla in order to build a coalition against the French, Kincaid kidnaps Mahla. Mahla is a girl from a rival tribe. Hussin forcefully takes her back, but by now his planned attack on Tarfa is crumbling and Mahla has begun to fall in love with Kincaid.
Ten Tall Men is a great movie to just watch and enjoy. No overwhelming drama, just good old fashioned entertainment. Burt Lancaster shines in a way only he can. The jokes are funny, the lines memorable, the girls pretty. It rolls along as you “listen to the squeaking of the little mouse”. This entire film is fun to watch. Great actors establish a fun filled afternoon of creative enjoyment. A solid family offering for all ages.
