the film is about the french legion in the arabian desert and the main character is a comedian who is short, thin man with large protruding gecko-like eyes set far apart. the film details the movement of the troops across the desert and shows desert fortifications that were trampled upon by rampaging camels and horses. it is a surrealistic comedy but i did not know the title. do you know any film that suits my description?


the second film is about three trailer trucks rescued from the amazon jungle by a rogue salvage team which includes the actor ron scheider? they managed to get the trucks working after being abandoned for so long and managed to cross ravines through hanging bridges just to salvage the cargo of these old trucks. i also don't know the title. i want to view it again.

Don't know the first movie but the second one is likely this, starring Roy Scheider:

Sorcerer (1977) - IMDb

That movie had a great soundtrack by Tangerine Dream.

I wonder if your first actor might be Marty Feldman?

Yeah, Marty Feldman. I remember watching a lot of Marty Feldman movies when I was a kid but the first one that comes to my mind is "Young Frankenstein.
I think the Roy Scheider film is "Wages of Fear" which is actually a remake
