(1955-1957)

TV Series

Country: Italy, Morocco, USA

Genre: Adventure

IMDb

Synopsis

Captain Gallant (Buster Crabbe) of the French Foreign Legion tries to keep the peace and suppress bandit tribes, whilst taking care of orphan boy (and Legion mascot) Cuffy (Cullen Crabbe).

Notes

  • Cullen Crabbe, who played the Legion mascot, was Buster Crabbe's real-life son.
  • The first season of the television series was filmed on location in French Morocco, with many actual Legionnaires and their installations featuring in the show. Subsequently, production was moved to Italy due to fears for the safety of the crew. The Italian studio, which was near Pisa, was owned by Sophia Loren.
  • Among the associated tie-ins and merchandise were: four issues of an American comic book; a playset (issued by Louis Marx and Company) containing a metal fort, palm trees, tents, accessories, and figures of Buster and Cullen Crabbe as well as Legionnaires and Arab figures; and the "Captain Gallant Adventure Game", a board game issued in 1955.
