If you liked THE CORSICAN BROTHERS (Douglas Fairbanks, 1941), you probably won't like this sequel. Richard Greene is pleasant and all that, but he's no Fairbanks. Mario Franchi leads a faction who wishes to unseat Burr and bring home rule to the people of Corsica. Franchi's twin brother

Carlos (from whom he was separated at birth) is a gypsy, and the two of them get together to overthrow Burr. So far, it's very much like the original in which the two brothers combined to overthrow Akim Tamiroff. The switch comes when we learn that Carlos has fallen in love with Mario's wife,

Raymond, and intends to do his brother in, thus taking over the Franchi fortune and the Franchi female. There is a battle between the siblings and--well, can you guess who comes out on top? For a hint, when was the last time you saw a gypsy hero? Ansara, who never stopped working in the 1950s, has

a small role as the blacksmith. The best things about the film are Schayer's screenplay, Nazarro's direction, and Burr's villainy. Despite his size in recent years, Burr remains an overlooked heavy who should have fared better at the critics' hands.
