Johnny Tyronne, action movie star and ladies man, is travelling through the Middle East on a goodwill tour to promote his latest movie, "Sands of the Desert". Once he arrives, however, he is kidnapped by a gang of assassins who were so impressed with his on-screen adventures that they want to hire him to carry out an assassination for them. He naturally refuses, and following his daring escape he makes his way across the desert back to civilization, pausing every now and then to sing a song or two. Written by

This movie is one of my favorite Elvis Presley movies. I watched it for the first time and couldn't even take a break from watching it I liked it so much. It is a great movie with a great soundtrack. Elvis once again shows he is a great singer and a great actor. This movie is about a famous actor in the United States, sort of like Rudolph Valentino, he dresses like a sheik; sword fights and beats all the bad guys with his karate in his most recent movie. He rescues the girl and then rides off with her. Assassins from a Middle Eastern country see how skilled this actor is with a sword and his karate so they kidnap him and bring him to their foreign land to kill their king.
One reviewer on this site said that this was Elvis's worst movie since King Creole. Don't listen to him. That guy doesn't know what the heck he's talking about. King Creole is were Elvis first showed he could be in a dramatic film. He also sings the best in King Creole and it's his greatest triumph as an actor. For someone to say that a great movie like this isn't good and then say King Creole isn't good, something has to be wrong there. This movie is action packed fun and has great music in it. Don't miss this Elvis movie.
