Battle of Camarone---French film


Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anybody has info on this rare French film about the French Foreign Legion in Mexico in the 1860s.

It's about a battle outside Puebla, Mexico between a handful of Legionnaires and a couple thousand Mexico troops.

It is still celebrated in the FFL as Camarone Day. They make a big production over it, parade Capt. Danjou's wooden hand around, celebrating a battle they lost.

A French film company made a movie about the battle back in the 60s or 70s.

Not the documentary I keep running into neither.

It's an actual full-length motion picture. A war film.

I know alot of folks who would love a DVD of this movie.
