Charge of the Lancers is a 1954 American adventure film directed by William Castle and starring Paulette Goddard and Jean-Pierre Aumont.[1] During the Crimean War, a French officer attached to the British forces takes part in trials for a secret weapon and becomes entangled with a Gypsy woman.


As the Crimean War rages, British Capt. Eric Evoir (Jean-Pierre Aumont) and Maj. Bruce Lindsey (Richard Wyler) are sent to the Crimea to protect a top-secret cannon capeble of blasting through the walls of a nearby Russian fort. Lindsey, unfortunately, is captured by the Russians, who subject him to brutal interrogations. It's up to Evoir to save him. Along the way, Evoir meets a beautiful gypsy girl (Paulette Goddard) and begins an affair as intense as the war itself.
