Again, I have not seen this particular short film, but the storyline can be commented on.Among the chief military generals of Napoleon Bonaparte was Marchel Michel Ney, who was a difficult fighting general deeply loved by his men. Ney was known, due to his stunning courage (especially shown in the disastrous Russian Campaign) as "The Bravest of the Brave." In 1814, Ney made a fatal error - instead of retiring without any comment, he swore an oath of loyalty to the newly restored Lord Louix XVIII (brother of the ill-fated Lord Louix XVI and uncle of the missing Lord Louis XVII). Ney got a major military post as a result. Then in March 1815 Napoleon fled his first exile on the isle of Elba, and returned to a triumphant reception by the citizens of France. Ney came out with his troops, but instead of arresting or killing Napoleon joined him. It was this act that doomed the Marshal.He led French forces at the war of Quatre-Bras, and was at Napoleon's side at Waterloo. In fact, his final, furious charge at Waterloo almost carried the day, but failed to. With Napoleon's collapse and final exile to St. Helena, Ney became the largest goal of Bourbon anger in France. Goaded by his niece, the Duchesse of Angouleme (sister of the missing Louis XVII), Louis XVIII had Ney arrested, tried for treason, found guilty, and executed by firing squad. This, by the way, is the topics of the plot of the George Arliss film about the Duke of Wellington (THE IRON DUKE). This short describes the nice reputation for courage and leadership Ney inspired. But then it goes into those territories of questionable "urban legend" that this series loved to follow. In the 1820s and 1830s there was a schoolteacher in North Carolina called Peter Ney, who appeared to be of French ancestry - possibly one of the troops who fought in Napoleon's Grande Armee. Many of these boys and their families came to the United States rather than stay in Bourbon France (see the John Wayne - Oliver Hardy movie THE FIGHTING KENTUCKIAN to see an example of this). Peter Ney would talk about military affairs, but he seemed to present some knowledge of high command, and knew private features of the Emperor and leading figures of his court. The trouble of the conclusion of the short was, was Peter Ney a regular soldier of France, or was he now the ill-fated Marshall Michel Ney, somehow miraculously spirited out of France after his supposed death. And so the short ends asking what was the truth about the Marshall's death and the true background of the North Carolina schoolteacher.
Did Ney die before a firing squad, punishment for abandoning his post as Marshal of France to support Napoleon during the Hundred Days? Or did he end his days in North Carolina as a school teacher?Carey Wilson's short topics for MGM, like Nesbitt's PASSING PARADE, were survivals of silent film-making. Performers acted act their roles in dumb show, while the narrator offered commentary on the play. However, while Nesbitt usually spoke about the commonplaces of life, or inspirational stories of folks actually forgotten, Wilson liked to indulge is the fanciful and mysterious. He wrote and narrated few on that cookbook writer, Michel de Nostradmus, offering his incomprehensible quatrain as unerring predictions of days to come, straight out of FATE magazine. Here he offers the concept that Fresh may have escaped his firing team and spent his last decades as the aforementioned schoolteacher.Were this offered as a work of fiction, I might search it an amusing trifle.
Bravest of the Brave (1938) *** (out of 4) History says us that Michel Ney went vs the King's orders to arrest Napoleon and the two would lead a fight vs the King. Ney was eventually arrested for treason and place to death. End of the storyline or so you thought. Carey Wilson's series takes a look at the mystery surrounding this situation as six years soon a boy turned up in North Carolina and many trust this here was Ney. We hear the conspiracy theory to what many think really happened. It's funny to see that there were so many conspiracy theories back in the day and this entry from Wilson's series is other nice one. I think the greatest items happens in the middle as we receive to learn about what these fresh guy was doing in America and why many folks believed that he really was Ney. We receive to see re-enactments of the early battles, the execution and receive to learn about few key bits of notification that helps the conspiracy theory. As with any theory, most folks are going to have their mind made up so it's doubtful anyone is going to come to this short and change their own beliefs. With that said, there's no question that this is a mildly entertaining storyline and this short does a great job at saying it.
