Morocco, the 1930's: Bob (Ralph Forbes) is a proud member of the French Foreign Legion - but that doesn't mean that he's particularly pleased when his brother Don (Ben Alexander) joins the legion as well, especially when Don falls for the wrong woman, Nina (Hala Linda), the special swetheart of their superior Sgt Garcia (George Regas) - who lets Don suffer for trying to get friendly with his girl once he findsw out - so much so that Don becomes a deserter, trying to leave Morocco via Sheik Ahmad's (Roy D'Arcy) strip of the desert. Sheik Ahmad though is a baddie, and he takes Don captive, and his brother Bob and his sidekicks Muggsey (Paul Hurst) and Bilgey (Jimmy Aubrey) as well when they come to rescue him. Ahmad even is so evil he tortures Don just to make Bob, a first-class mechanic, to build him machineguns for an uprising against the French. Ahmad has the perfect plan for this uprising, too, but thank God Nina stops by Ahmad's camp, where she's free to come and go as she pleases, and through her, Bob gets information out to the legion just in time. Plus, Ahmad is stupid enough to equip Bob, Don and friends with machineguns during the attack on the French, and they of course turn against Ahmad's men. In the end, Muggsey, Bilgey aqnd Don are all allowed to die a hero's death, but before dying Don actually tells Bob it's Bob who Nina loves, not him ...

 

In the 1930's, the French Foreign Legion in Africa was the source of many a good story - Legion of the Missing Men unfortunately is not one of them though, it's just a boring melodrama of the love triangle variety that seems to be set in Africa rather by chance than by intent with hardly any action at all. Rather forgettable, actually.
