CAPTAIN GALLANT OF THE FOREIGN LEGION Vol. 1 (approx 120 min)
"DESERT TERROR": When the pumping station for one of the oil companies is attacked and blown up, Captain Gallant is assigned to investigate. He confronts a thief at the company offices and discovers that the man works for a competing engineering company, owned and run by Kelley Mitchell (Roberta Haynes), a tough-as-nails woman, who reveals that she's been the victim of cheating and espionage herself, from her competitors. When the only witness to the bombing is shot to death, the clues lead Gallant back to Mitchell's company, where he has to subdue her before he can get her to answer any questions. One final twist leads him back to the most unexpected suspect of all. "THE UNWILLING LEGIONAIRE": Jan Novak is a Polish expatriate who has joined the Legion, but doesn't like serving in it, resenting the "foreign" uniform.

The Colonel receives a tip phoned in by an informant that the killers aren't who they seem to be, and Captain Gallant (Buster Crabbe) goes to meet her. "DESERT ATTACK": A group of legionaries are under attack by what appear to be Taureg tribesmen, and only quick action by Gallant (Buster Crabbe) and Fuzzy (Fuzzy Knight) saves the troopers.
