| Not My Cup of Tea
The Fighting Eagle isn't my cup of tea. I find period dramas to be tedious for the most part, and this one lived up to that expectation. Etienne Gerard (Rod la Rocque) is a braggart who works to take down Tallyrand, the foreign minister. His slapdash antics constantly land him in trouble, but he still somehow manages to make good.

This was my first experience seeing la Rocque, and I was surprised at how goofy-looking he was, because I always got the impression that he was a Casanova type. His height, small frame, and delicate features seemed to contrast the manly, arrogant character he plays. Phyllis Haver is more impressive. I've seen her in Battle of the Sexes and Chicago and she is very different in each film.

The story runs smoothly, but espionage and politics just aren't my thing.
