COMPLETE FILMOGRAPHY WITH SYNOPSIS
Cast (feature film)
Co-stars have an affair while filming the story of a doomed love.
Foreign Legion Major Foster (Hackman), an American haunted by his memories of the recently-ended Great War, is assigned to protect a group of archaeologists at their dig. Foster's unit includes the charming, thieving rascal Marco (Hill), who joined the Legion only to avoid prison. After long stretches portraying the boredom and hardship of day-to-day life in the Legion, Foster's command occupies a small village where the archaeologists believe they've found a burial site sacred to the Arabs. An Arab leader (Holm) uses this affront to unite the tribes in Jihad, and attacks the tiny Legion garrison at the dig. An epic battle follows, very reminiscent of the film "Zulu". Costumes, firearms, and props are all very authentic-looking, and show great attention to detail.
A sophisticated London widow renounces a successful business career -- and the man who loves her -- to become a cloistered Benedictine nun. Diana Rigg won an Emmy Award nomination for her performance in the lead role.
The understudy goes on for the star and finds love.

It seems that any or all of them could have had a hand in her death. But who is the mysterious Inspector and what can he want of them ?
