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.

Gordon Scott amid the desert sands
12 October 2005 | by (Minneapolis) – See all my reviews

Largely filmed in Egypt, this Saturday-matinée adventure has an expansive quality not often found in sword-and-sandal movies. Unfortunately, some of this quality will be lost when shrunk onto a TV screen, but an efficient script, replete with sure-fire ingredients, and an enthusiastic cast make up for any visual disappointments. Heading the cast is ex-Tarzan Gordon Scott who takes awhile to enter the scene and who then wears a headdress which often obscures the lower part of his face. By the end of the movie, however, the headdress is gone along with Scott's shirt and finally being able to see his sweaty, sun-bronzed torso is well worth the wait. Along the way he suffers a flogging inside his enemy's dungeon and this may be the only time you'll see Scott writhing under the whip. (The flogging, alas, isn't included in the book: "Lash! The Hundred Great Scenes of Men Being Whipped in the Movies.") Clocking in at little more than a brisk 80 minutes, this minor but worthy effort has the good sense to give the audience what it wants, and then to quit while it's ahead.
