Storyline

In the Middle East, circa 1860s, the evil Omar seeks to become Khadive by killing off his adversaries and by marrying the reluctant Fawzia, favorite niece of the current Khadive. (After marrying Fawzia, he plans to eliminate her so he can then marry his own choice, the ruthless Zahira.) Omar's brutal policies result in the death of a young woman named Laila. Laila's brother, Kerim, then becomes Omar's sworn enemy. Now known as "the Black Shiek," Kerim becomes a Robin Hood of the desert, rallying various tribes in a revolt against Omar. In the process Kerim meets and falls in love with Fawzia who eventually comes to share his feelings. In disguise, Kerim infiltrates Omar's headquarters but is discovered, imprisoned -- along with Fawzia and her father, Mansur -- and flogged. A sympathetic slave girl named Selima rides and informs Prince Ahmed who comes to Kerim's rescue. In a hand-to-hand duel, Kerim kills Omar. Then Kerim and Fawzia ride off together into the desert. Written by dinky-4 of Minneapolis

Obscure Gordon Scott feature
29 January 2006 | by (Parkton, MD) – See all my reviews

This film is rarely listed in reference books or Movie guides, but is an excellent example of the sword and sandal genre & an interesting entry in Scott's filmography.

Even the IMDb does not list this title in an English version, but a dubbed and anglicized version is in circulation, if you hunt around long enough.

For those of you who are interested in seeing this film, a copy is available @ Movieflix.com (membership required), although the print available (listed on the site as "Son of the Sheik", with no mention of Gordon Scott as its star) is smeary, with poor sound and super-imposed foreign subtitles.

Its availability on MOVIEFLIX is a slightly better option than never seeing it, but not much.
