Storyline

Khalil is an Arab diplomat who wants to not only make peace with Israel, but admit the Jewish state as a member of OPEC. This instantly makes him a target for a series of ingeniously conceived assassination attempts, most of which he foils with the aid of his friend Hamid and his girlfriend Nicole. But can he trust even them? Written by John A. Barnes <john.barnes@pfizer.com>

Trivia

Sean Connery once said of his role in this film: "I took the part of Khalil in The Next Man (1976) based on reasoning that I always use. I thought him to be an interesting character. He is a contemporary man in every sense of the word: sportsman, diplomat, lover, intellectual . . . a complete man of our times." See more »

Deserving to be buried and forgotten
25 May 2000 | by (Anywhere but there) – See all my reviews

I found "The Arab Conspiracy" in a bargain bin and thought I'd uncovered a lost treasure. Folks, there's a reason why you don't hear much about this film. The plot is muddy, the pacing is slow, Cornelia Sharpe is about as vivacious as plain, cold tofu, and the ending leaves you flat. Not even Sean Connery can save this one.
