Description by OLDIES.com:
On his way to a tour of duty in the Middle East, Lt. Paul Dumond meets and falls in love with a beautiful young woman. Upon his arrival at the training camp, he discovers that the woman is engaged to marry his best friend and colleague. Heartbroken, he sets his mind on his work, but finds that he has entered a conflict much greater and more heated then he expected. The natives are bloodthirsty and determined to eradicate the foreign army. When Dumond captures and executes their leader, he ignites the wrath of the warlord's brother, inspiring a vicious duel that will only end when one of them is dead.
Director George Waggner snagged Dick Tracy lead Ralph Byrd for this tense, romantic, and action packed epic. Waggner went on to greater acclaim a few years later when he directed Universal's The Wolf Man.
Ralph Byrd, best known for his work portraying comic book character Dick Tracy, stars here as Foreign Legionairre Paul Dumont. En route to Morocco to take up a post as advisor to the Legion's newly-formed parachute troop, he meets the beautiful Helene (Lorna Gray, who later went by Adrian Booth). The two share a mutual attraction, but when Dumont discovers that the lovely lady is none other than his best friend's fiancée, he demurs. In the meantime, his friend and fellow officer, Raoul (Peter George Lynn), is injured during an Arab attack, and with the wedding postponed, Dumont and Helene are drawn to each other even more. They subsequently find themselves thrown together in the tent of a fortune teller, which unbeknown to them is hiding a cache of weapons belonging to an Arab warlord intent on revenge.
