March or Die movie scene

Gene Hackman is a Major in the French Foreign Legion in March or Die.

In the tradition of Beau Gest, the 1977 action-adventure film March or Die stars Gene Hackman (The Conversation) and Ian Holm (Brazil).

It’s 1918 and a war-weary American Major (Hackman) in the French Foreign Legion, with a ragtag squadron of young legionnaires, is assigned to a remote Moroccan outpost. Their mission is to secure a French government archaeological dig that is looting an ancient tomb of its Arab treasure. The troops’ presence is not at all welcome by the Arab chieftain El Krim (Holm), who vows to expel the French intruders at any cost. But the French steadfastly refuse to leave. After a series of skirmishes, the film concludes with an epic battle between the two forces.

Directed by Dick Richards, produced by a young Jerry Bruckheimer, and shot by the great cinematographer John Alcott (A Clockwork Orange), the film has an impressive supporting cast, including Max von Sydow (The Magician), Catherine Deneuve (Belle du Jour) and Terence Hill (The Leopard).

Presented in anamorphic widescreen with a 1.78:1 aspect ratio, March or Die arrives from Hen’s Tooth in its first-ever  U.S. widescreen edition.
