How the Brigadier Won His Medals – 1954 Schlitz Playhouse

How the Brigadier Won His Medals – 1954 Schlitz Playhouse

In 1954, the Schlitz Playhouse was in its third season on CBS and aired a version of How the Brigadier Won His Medal that was very faithful to the original Arthur Conan Doyle story. Claude Dauphin played the role of Gerard to near perfection.  At the end of the teleplay, check out the Legion of Honour that Gerard is now proudly wearing.

For more information about this particular episode, check out the Brigadier Gerard page at the Holloway Pages Napoleon Filmography.
