Action in Arabia Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Exiled from his own country during WW2, French filmmaker [[Performer~P103169~Leonide Moguy~léonidemoguy]] worked briefly in Hollywood, where he directed the patriotic thriller Action in Arabia. [[Performer~P62948~George Sanders~georgesanders]] stars as Gordon, an American newspaperman at large in Damascus. When a colleague is murdered, [[Performer~P62948~Sanders~georgesanders]] wants to find out why. He is helped along by glamourous secret agent Yvonne ([[Performer~P9135~Virginia Bruce~virginiabruce]]), who is on the trail of a group of Nazi saboteurs. It turns out that the murder is tied in with a plan to destroy the Suez Canal in the name of Der Fuehrer. Though economically produced, Action in Arabia benefits from several rather spectacular-looking scenes of desert combat-most of these lifted from a never-finished 1933 filmed biography of Lawrence of Arabia. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
