The Lost Patrol (1934) part 1

This is part one of a classic John Ford movie set in Mesopotamia during World War One. It stars Victor McLagen and Boris Karloff and is one of the great 'siege' movies that probably was a template of many similar films since. Almost a Western this is Ford for once recreating the British army in a central role. McLagen is one of my favourite Ford stars - read his biography to see what a remarkable man he was with a career spanning many continents and paths.
