Colonel John Wister, on duty with the British army in the desert region of Dubik, returns to England on leave. There he falls in love with Julia Ashton, who cares deeply for him but believes herself incapable of love following the death of her fiancé; some time before. Wister convinces her that he loves her enough to live without her romantic love and that she should marry him. She does so and returns to Dubik with him. There she meets his adjutant, Captain Denny Roark. Roark is a dashing young man who reminds Julia thoroughly of her lost love. Soon she finds she is indeed capable of love, but it is Roark with whom she falls in love, not her husband. As warfare with the local tribes heats up and as Wister gains awareness of the unconsummated romance growing between his wife and best friend, tragedy lurks. Written by Jim Beaver <>

Did You Know?


Originally, the film had a different, much longer ending, in which Errol Flynn's character takes the plane out for the impossible mission and dies, allowing the married couple (Ian Hunter and Kay Francis) to be reconciled, thereby also satisfying the Production Code. However, by the time of the preview, Flynn had become such a hot box office property with female moviegoers, the ending was re-shot with Ian Hunter nobly sacrificing himself allowing Flynn to have the fadeout clinch.

7 June 2002 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Stodgy and over talky movie that falls between two stools--being neither satisfying as a romantic tale or an action movie.It largely unfolds in a British army outpost in Mesopotamia commanded by Ian Hunter who ,while holidaying in England ,falls in love with and marries a vivacious American widow,played by Kay Francis.On returning to the outpost a relationship develops between her and the second in command-a dashing Errol Flynn.This being the age of the stiff upper lip nobility and self sacrifice rule the day. There is one brisk desert fight between the British and the rebel Arabs but otherwise this is a picture that unfolds in drawing room chat and trembling lower lips are the order of the day.Flynn was always at his best in action rather than dialogue and while looking suitably dashing is simply dull, a state Francis is not good enough to attain being largely inert. The strong point of the movie,and the reason for my heading of this review is the striking score by Erich Wolfgang Korngold who used its themes in his majestic and still unduly neglected Violin Concerto When a score carries its main emotional weight then you have a movie which is sadly lacking in other departments Ignore the movie--track down the Concerto instead
