Ok so late one not this movie comes on. Beau Gest which is french for Beautiful Gesture. Anyway I had heard this old B&W movie mentioned many times and thought "Hey why not check it out". Turns out it's a really cool movie with a mystery involving the French Foriegn Legion, murder, brothers, honor, and a diamond theft. Bad news is I had to get up early and there was no way I could stay up till 2:00AM and see how it ended. I tried Googling it and couldn't find out the ending.

So anyone know how this film ended?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beau_Geste#Plot_summary

About the book:

Throughout the book and adventures, Beau's behaviour is true to France and the Legion, and he dies at his post. At Brandon Abbas, the last survivor of the three brothers, John, is welcomed by their aunt and his fiancée Isobel, and the reason for the jewel theft is revealed to have been a matter of honour, and to have been the only "decent thing" possible.

Theres been about 4 adaptations of the book and there are 3 more book sequels.
