YANKEE PASHA is a prime example of one of those movies that seemed wonderful when you were a kid but somewhat less so when revisited in later life.Based on a novel by Edison(THE VIKINGS)Marshall the movie tells the story of a fur trapper(Jeff Chandler)who travels all the way to Morocco via Marseilles to rescue his beloved(Rhonda Fleming)who has been kidnapped by Barbary pirates and forced to become the slave of a Jannisary warlord.All this stuff seemed magical and thrilling years ago but now serves as just an effective piece of 50's costume adventure hokum.Well-packaged hokum,however,with Jeff Chandler in good macho form as the burly hero and a nice contribution from Mamie Van Doren as a feisty slave girl.Of its type this is enjoyable stuff and worth a look.
