While the WWI raged in Europe British troops were fighting in a far
corner of the world . Small solitary patrols moved over the vast
Mesopotamian desert that seemed on fire with the sun . The molten sky
gloated over them . The endless desert wore the blank look of death .
Yet these men marched on without a murmur , fighting an unseen Arab
enemy who always struck in the dark . A brave group (Wallace Ford ,
Boris Karloff , Reginald Denny , among others) of British cavalrymen
lost in the desert are shot by the Arabs (Francis Ford , John Ford's
older brother , appears in an uncredited role as an Arab) , one by one
and twelve battered fighting men battle it out to the finish . Dead the
official commander they are ulteriorly commanded by the sergeant
(Victor McLagen) , then arise boiling passions in the burning sands .
The movie gets brief psychological remarks about diverse character
studios , especially the religious fanatic Karloff and although is
completely developed on the wide desert , the tale results to be
claustrophobic . Produced by RKO with a script by Dudley Nichols ,
usual Ford's screenwriter . Merian C.Cooper (King Kong) as executive
producer intervened profoundly in this film along with main producer
Cliff Red . The picture was shot for two weeks (1933) in Yuma desert
which represented Mesopotamian desert (Modern Irak) . The temperature
on the Yuma locations could be as hot as 150 degrees and actors were
limited to working two hours a day . Philip McDonald (novel's author
being based the movie) had been recruited in the British cavalry during
WWI (1917) and he ulteriorly wrote an intrigue and suspense tale ,
adding his war memories . Also Andrew McLaglen actually served with the
Irish Fusiliers in Mesopotamia during World War I at the same time this
story takes place . Max Steiner's musical score was nominated for
Academy Award , and this classic composer re-used the main title music
he wrote for this film for the main title music for Casablanca , albeit
with a slightly different instrumentation and tempo . Magnificent
direction by the master John Ford and excellent interpretations make
this a very good film . Subsequently remade and reworked several times
: ¨Sahara¨ (by Zoltan Korda) with scenarios in Libya desert ;
¨Bataan¨(Tay Garnett) in Philippines jungle ; ¨Last of Comanches¨
(Andre De Toth) in Califonia desert ; and even part of ¨Flight of
Phoenix¨ (Robert Aldrich) in Sahara desert . The motion picture will
appeal to cinema classics moviegoers .
