When Rex Ingram and Alice Terry went to Tunisia to film The Arab (1924) they met a young boy and, on being told he was an orphan, they adopted him and took him back to America with them. When he got there, the boy Kada-Abd-el-Kader, began associating with fast women and fast cars throughout the San Fernando Valley. It seemed that he had misrepresented himself and was really older than he had told them. They eventually sent the "boy" back to Morocco. The Ingrams told friends and the press that Kada was going to finish his schooling in his native land. This wasn't true but in those days things like that were kept quiet. Kada later became a tourist guide in Morocco and Algiers and would always tell tourists (especially Americans) that he was the adopted son of Rex Ingram and Alice Terry.
