User Reviews

I have waited and hoped for years that this picture would again surface so as to see it again. It was a wonderful version of the Desert Song.

As to why this film is not available, my sister who formerly lived in California thought this movie was privately owned by Irene Manning's and/or her husband and that is why it has not been released to the general public. I was very young when I saw this but remember the beautiful technicolor and music. When video came to be, I looked and looked but never saw anything about the movie and not even about the main stars Dennis Morgan and Irene Manning. I assumed that the decision not to put it on video and TV might have been a commercial one.
