Description by OLDIES.com:
Roger Norman, a British veteran of World War I bored with civilian life, enlists in the Greek Army. As a lieutenant, he meets Jania, a local girl whom he rescues from a burning house. Roger's commanding officer attacks Jania and then dies accidentally in a fight with Roger. The two escape and are captured by bandits who force Roger to cooperate with them.
Produced by Cecil B. DeMille, STAND AND DELIVER was directed by former D.W. Griffith associate Donald Crisp. Set in postwar Greece, the story concerns an expatriate Englishman named Roger Norman (Rod LaRoque), who is bored with civilian life and seeks out thrills. He gets more than he bargained for when he joins the Greek army in search of an elusive bandit named Ghika (Warner Oland). During a raid, Norman and the film's heroine Jania (Lupe Velez) are abducted by Ghika's men and spirited off to the mountains. For a while, Norman's loyalties are torn between the charismatic bandit, who seems to have a genuine beef against the government, and the Army, which has threatened to execute Norman because he punched out a superior officer. But by film's end, Norman has realigned himself with the authorities and captured the bandit, winning the girl in the process.
