Storyline

A wise-cracking, uninhibited American girl, Susie Perkins (Joan Davis), is hired as a secretary/companion to Princess Shareen (Peggie Castle), a middle-east ruler of a small desert kingdom. Soon after their arrival, Susie learns that Shareen is in great danger, as a wicked sheik desires to get a hold of her oil-rich lands, and the Princess, also. After some wild adventures, aided by Majeed (Paul Marion), sweetheart of Shareen, Susie cleans up the situation, and is last seen joining the French Foreign Legion, which is 'for men only,' which suits Susie just fine. So is she. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Joan goes wild
7 March 2005 | by (Tucson,Az) – See all my reviews

Funny flick of Joan Davis going to the middle east with exotic princess and then subbing for her in marriage deal with unpleasant sheik. Lots of horseplay and comedy scenes. Joan is quite a comedienne and makes the most of her story. Peggy Castle makes a lovely princess,the rest of the B-cast does well. It has a nice set design from Columbia Pictures. The writers and director were three stooges veterans so the comedy is a sure thing. I especially liked hilarious scene where Joan tries to be dancing girl and end up making a mess as usual. The other funny scene involves Joan in a deserted tomb with rumors of a ghostly presence. I would highly recommend this film and wish more of these type of films made it to DVD.
