Description by OLDIES.com:

After their small plane runs out of gas, a pilot with the U.S. Flying Tigers and his two civilian passengers are forced to land near a remote area of Iraq populated with fanatic Arab devil worshippers. Soon they come upon the mysterious Kingdom of Ghatsi where a wealthy and sophisticated Sheik welcomes them to his opulent palace. The three Americans realize, however, that they have become prisoners in the plush castle and that the Sheik is a Nazi collaborator with evil plans for their future.

Product Description:

In the midst of World War II, a beautiful young woman and two men are left stranded in the middle of a desolate Iraqi desert after a near-fatal plane crash. The group is wrongly incarcerated by an affluent Arab sheik--who just happens to be a Nazi collaborator--and a struggle for freedom and survival commences. A tense, wartime thriller.

Rating 2.5 A little short on action Movie Lover: from Middle Village, NY US -- May, 10, 2010

OK. A place crashes in Iraq in what looks like a pinfe forest but later appears to be a desert around that most famous outdoor set - Spann Ranch. The Arabs and Iraqis are not portrayed well and the action - what little is found - is kind of reserved to the end when US biplanes - like the cavalry in a western - arrive on the scene and save the day. Too much talk in the middle doesn't help.


Rating 3.0 killing time in Iraq Movie Lover: from somewhere out there -- May, 12, 2006

A pilot from the Flying Tigers, another guy, and a woman have a forced landing in Iraq due to engine trouble, and they become the guest of a guy who's apparently an ancestor of Saddam Hussein - a devil-worshiping sheik. They're treated well, but he's working with the Nazis and plans to hold them hostage in exchange for the release of some of his brothers who've been arrested for spying. The brothers are due to be executed, and if they are, he'll let the prisoners be executed in a Satanic rite. Most of this "adventure" consists of standing around waiting and talking, but there is a little action toward the end, which includes a really obvious mannequin being thrown off a balcony. It has novelty (not many WW II movies were concerned with Arabs) and decent production values (it looks really good for a B-film) on its side, but is too slow and mundane overall to be very tempting.
