COMPLETE FILMOGRAPHY WITH SYNOPSIS

The childhood of Saint Bernadette Soubirous in which she sees a vision of the Virgin Mary and enters the convent.
After an architect, pronounced dead, miraculously returns to life, his continues his life with greater intensity.
The dramatic account of a woman tormented by romantic jealousy and memories of an unhappy childhood.
A dying French naval frigate captain tries to make a last rendezvous in the winter storm-tossed seas off the Grand Banks, with "le crab tambour," a French war hero he had betrayed twenty years earlier. "Le crab tambour" the drummer crab" was a boyhood nickname for the handsome young Alsatian whom the film depicts proving his courage, first in the war in French Indochina, and then again in the "Generals' Revolt" in Algeria. Courtmartialed because friends like the French naval captain were afraid to risk their own careers by testifying for him, the exiled "crab tambour" and his trawler, The Shamrock, is now a legend among the Grand Banks fishermen.
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.
When a man comes into money, he buys a large country house and invites his office co-workers to a party. During the party, the colleagues release their inhibitions and get to know each other.
A committed film director struggles to complete his movie while coping with a myriad of crises among the cast and crew.
Personal setbacks turn a working man into a notorious thief.
A young French couple is separated by the war in Algiers.
An antique dealer, her former lover and her stepson deal with traumatic memories.
Cast (feature film)
This "expansion" of Ernest Hemingway's vivid novel about American expatriates trying to find themselves in lives of disillusion in Europe just after World War I proved to be as flawed as the 1957 movie version that starred Tyrone Power, Ava Gardner and Errol Flynn, among other notables. Not helping
