Description by OLDIES.com:
Navy weatherman are forced to accept the help of Mongol nomads in the Gobi desert during World War II, when their craft comes under fire from Japanese attack.
An offbeat blend of World War II drama and "Arabian Nights" escapism, DESTINATION GOBI is all the more odd in that it is allegedly based on fact. Richard Widmark heads a group of US Navy men, sent to Mongolia for weather observation. Widmark must lead his men across the treacherous Gobi desert to the freedom of the seacoast. Rescued from the Japanese by a Mongolian chief (Murvyn Vye), the men are compelled to repay their rescuer by securing enough saddles for his sixty horses. A flummoxed Pentagon okays the requisition, and the chieftain leads Widmark's band to Okinawa. DESTINATION GOBI makes good use of the Arizona desert, which "stands in" for Gobi.
