An adaptation of Philip MacDonald’s novel Patrol, this WWI film tells the tale of eleven British cavalry regiment men led by Sergeant Victor McLaglen, lost and adrift in the Mesopotamian desert and slowly, but viciously being killed off one by one by an unseen enemy. Starring Boris Karloff, Wallace Ford, Reginald Denny, J.M. Kerrigan, Alan Macdonald and Victor McLaglen, The Lost Patrol is minimal in its visual execution by director John Ford but relentless in Max Steiner's relentless musical theme, which later went on to later be adapted into his score for the Warner Bros' classic, Casablanca. With edge-of-your-seat action a plenty and hide-behind-your-coach scenes in abundance, The Lost Patrol manages to make it into the Cockpit USA Movie Monday hall of fame!
