Essentially a chase film from beginning to end, this standard adventure yarn by director Ronald Neame is set in "Zahrain," a barely-disguised Middle Eastern nation. Sharif (Yul Brynner) is a rebel who has taken up arms against the country's corrupt government and the forces of Western imperialism. Now he and a small party of supporters (one a kidnapped woman about to become a supporter) take off across the desert with soldiers in hot pursuit. As the group flees through untamed country, there are brief moments of respite but no immediate escape in sight. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi

Very good 1950s movie set in the middle east of its day with some terrific actors starring Yul Brynner. There is also a great uncredited cameo performance by James Mason.
This is also an unusual movie because it is more or less a chase film from beginning to end.....enjoy!
