It perfectly suggests the nomadic life of the desert's peoples
4 November 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

An unusual picture with true desert scenes and real Arabs, We have not the slightest doubt that it was taken in the actual Sahara and it perfectly suggests the nomadic life of the desert's peoples. The photography is clear and often beautiful. It is these lesser things rather than the story which is very fair, however, that make it a fine offering. The story is simple and might be true, but is not strongly dramatic. The leading man over-acted all through his business and this took the edge off the story's reality. - The Moving Picture World, September 6, 1913
