Under Two Flags (novel)

Under Two Flags () was a best-selling novel by Ouida.[1] The most famous of her books, it tells the story of an English aristocrat, apparently in disgrace, who disappears and joins a French battalion in Algeria, loosely based on the Foreign Legion.

Plot[edit]

The novel is about The Hon. Bertie Cecil (nicknamed Beauty of the Brigades).[2][3]

In financial distress because of his own profligacy and the loss of an important horse-race on which he has bet extensively, and falsely accused of forgery, but unable to defend himself against the charge without injuring the "honour" of a lady and also exposing his younger brother (the real culprit), Cecil fakes his own death and exiles himself to Algeria where he joins the Chasseurs d'Afrique, a regiment comprising soldiers from various countries, rather like the French Foreign Legion.

After Cecil's great childhood friend and the friend's beautiful sister show up in Africa, and after a series of melodramatic self-sacrifices by Cecil and by the young girl Cigarette, a "child of the Army" who sacrifices her life saving Cecil from a firing squad, the main conflicts are resolved and the surviving characters return to England to fortune, title, and love.

Adaptations[edit]

Blanche Batesas Cigarette in David Belasco's Broadway production of Under Two Flags()

The book has also served as a basis for a number of stage and film adaptations.

  • Under Two Flags, a Broadway play by Paul M. Potter that ran for performances at the Garden Theatre, starring Blanche Bates and Maclyn Arbuckle, directed by David Belasco and produced by Charles Frohman.[4]
  • Under Two Flags ( film), (There were two adaptations, according to IMDb).
  • Under Two Flags, a short film starring Gertrude Astor[5][6]
  • Under Two Flags ( film), a film starring Theda Bara
  • Under Two Flags ( film), a film directed by Tod Browning starring Priscilla Dean
  • Under Two Flags ( film), featuring Ronald Colman, Claudette Colbert, Victor McLaglen and Rosalind Russell

Since Friday already. Did you have it. Mishka grinned and, turning his head, showed a bruise on his right cheek: Here, I left a mark. Tell. From the words of Mishka, the following emerged: Kolka really came to them.

The girl tried to breathe and scream more quietly, but outbursts of pleasure made her lose control of herself.
