Storyline

Agadez is a lonely French outpost baking under the desert sun and commanded by the cruel and oppressive Captain Savatt (C. Henry Gordon). To it comes, at his own request, Legionnaire Jim Wilson (Paul Kelly soon followed by his fiancée, Carla Preston (Lorna Gray), who has been tracing him from post to post.

But Savitt gets through and returns to the fort at the head of an avenging troop of men. But Arabs surround Savitt and his men, and the mutineers, knowing that to leave the fort and aid them means their own death... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

User Reviews

A "Mutiny on the Bounty" rip-off with nary a drop of water in sight.

Sam (Samuel) Fuller and Maxwell Shane, both noted for writing some better-than-average originals, didn't waste much in the way of creative juices on this one. Do away with the band of gritty-but-game Arabs, sprinkle some water around Fort Agadez and the whole movie would be heading straight for Pitcarin Island.
