The Last Remake of Beau Geste (Special Editon) (Blu-ray)
Directed by Feldman Marty
James Earl Jones
It’s a spoof to end all spoofs as comedy legend Marty Feldman (Young Frankenstein) shatters the Gary Cooper/French Foreign Legion classic in The Last Remake of Beau Geste. Set in England and Morocco in 1906, Feldman’s “remake” mocks all the do-or-die extravaganzas we’ve known and loved as he portrays Digby, identical twin brother to Michael York’s (The Island of Dr. Moreau) stalwart Beau Geste. Joining in the desert lunacy are a vast array of stars including Peter Ustinov (Death on the Nile), Terry-Thomas (Those Daring Young Men in Their Jaunty Jalopies), Ann-Margret (52 Pick-Up) as the boys’ seductive stepmother and James Earl Jones (Star Wars) as Sheik Abdul the Disgusting. Feldman co-wrote, stars and makes his outrageous directorial debut with this zany comedy which, as the title suggests, threatens to end the whole romance-adventure genre once and for all. The hilarious cast also includes Trevor Howard (Kidnapped), Henry Gibson (The Long Goodbye), Roy Kinnear (How I Won the War), Spike Milligan (The Bed Sitting Room), Avery Schreiber (Scavenger Hunt) and Hugh Griffith (Kind Hearts and Coronets).
