White Squadron (Lo squadrone bianco)
Squadrone Bianco (The White Squadron) was the last of three films completed in 1936 by versatile Italian director Augusto Genina. The story concerns a young cavalry officer (Fosco Giachetti) who voluntarily transfers to a godforsaken outpost in Africa. He has done this to get over an unhappy romance but now finds he is twice as unhappy in solitude.
