In 1906, two American brothers join the French Foreign Legion and, led by a sadistic Sergeant-Major, they defend a fort against Berber and Tuareg attack.
Michael "Beau" Geste leaves England in disgrace and joins the infamous French Foreign Legion. He is reunited with his two brothers in North Africa, where they face greater danger from their own sadistic commander than from the rebellious Arabs.

Not to nitpick but the brothers are American in this 1966 version -- and their names aren't even "Geste." "Beau Geste" is a nickname given to Beau (not Michael) Graves (Guy Stockwell) by his commanding officer (Leslie Nielsen). Beau's brother (Doug McClure) is named John but it's unclear whether his last name is Graves. In the Legion he calls himself "Johnson."

This version of P.C. Wren's famous tale leaves out one of the brothers in the story of Michael 'Beau' Geste and how his attempt to save the family honor leads him and his brother John from stately England to the murderous ranks of the French Foreign Legion.
