Intrigue in the Orient

A rare but pretty boring little movie which takes place between Turkey and Egypt. A very talkative film with little action, and a story which nobody cares of.

A mix up of espionage and adventure, intrigue among the Eastern spell.

Lisa Ferraday and Richard Denning bring not enough help to stay you awake.

Anyway I am glad to have it in my collection. When you're a movie addict, you must accept all kind of features. But I must admit that the producer - Wallace Mc Donald - has done better in his career. I saw others of his movies - I don't remember the titles, sorry - but they were far more interesting.
