The Sheikh With Four Fingers
13 October 2007 | by (Oakland CA) – See all my reviews

A dastardly villain known as The Sheikh threatens to wipe out the city of Beirut (and all 650,000 of its citizens) in this reasonably entertaining West German thriller from director Manfred Kohler, perhaps best known today for co-writing Harry Kumel's erotic vampire epic Daughters of Darkness. Frederick Stafford plays suave secret agent Richard Blake, on the trail of The Sheikh with the assistance of gorgeous reporter Denise DuPree (Genevieve Cluny). A philanthropist named Omar Abdullah (Willy Birgel), whose cause is rehabilitating criminals, attracts the attention of Blake, and we're off to the races. Babes, bullets, and gadgets--they're all here and shot on location in mod, mod Beirut, at the time an 'international city' and a popular spot for European co-productions. Music lovers should note that Ennio Morricone's score echoes his spaghetti western work but fits nicely into the proceedings, whilst anticipating Theodorakis' percussive Z score by a full year. The English language print misspells his name 'Morricono', though!
