Plenty of adventure in the desert, with "villains dashing madly across deserts with the lives of both the hero and the heroine at stake, - long underground avenues, trick doors, trap doors and many ways of the unruly villains to torture the innocent. - Allene Ray plays the daughter of a Mohammedan desert merchant, and the discovery that she is really French furthers her romance with the hero. Also featured are archaeological diggings and rescue by the British Army." ( Variety- 1924 )

Originally planned as a vehicle for Charles Hutchison
, to be directed by W.S. Van Dyke
. Filming of the first episode went disastrously: Hutch was to jump from a balcony to a chandelier and swing across a room, but the chandelier came crashing to the floor with him. The result was the backwards dislocation of one of Hutch's elbows. The project was shelved and eventually scrapped. See more
