Beau Geste

Beau Geste is a 'man's' picture. The story revolves around three brothers and their love for each other. And a great looking trio - Ronald Colman, Neil Hamilton and Ralph Forbes. Beyond that the love interest is strictly secondary, practically nil.

Beau Geste is a ‘man’s’ picture. The story revolves around three brothers and their love for each other. And a great looking trio – Ronald Colman, Neil Hamilton and Ralph Forbes. Beyond that the love interest is strictly secondary, practically nil.

The picture is all story. In fact, only one cast member seems to get above the scenario. This is Noah Beery as the bestial sergeant-major. A part that only comes along every so often, and Beery gives it the same prominence in which P.C. Wren, the author, conceived it. It’s undoubtedly one of his best portrayals.

When all is said and done, Colman, in the title role, hasn’t so very much to do. Hamilton equals him for footage and Forbes exceeds him. Forbes, in his first picture, impresses all the way. Hamilton also gives a sincere performance. But there can be no question that Beery is the outstanding figure of the picture.
