Movie Info

Although it is based on an intriguing premise -- Dale (Brooke Shields), disguised as a man, takes the place of her late father in a 1927 car race through the Sahara -- this film perversely falls flatter than a blow-out, and just as quickly. After starting the race and because of tribal warfare, Dale winds up a prisoner of the thug Rasoul (John Rhys-Davies) but is appropriately rescued by a dashing sheik (Lambert Wilson).

I saw this movie many years ago on television.
It's a 1984 movie that was inspired by the disappearance of British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher's son in a trans-Sahara rally, Brooke Sheilds plays Dale who enrolls in a trans-Africa auto race following the death of her father before being abducted by an Arabian sheik.
Directing the movie is Andrew V. McLaglen who also directed some other very entertaining adventure movies such as THE WILD GEESE, THE SEA WOLVES and one of my all-time favorite action adventure movies FFOLKES (Known as NORTH SEA HIJACK in Europe).
This movie seems lost between trying to appeal to both the RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK crowd and the Harlequin romantic drama fans and is somewhat successful on both counts,. Still some great imagery and beautiful photography are the definite high points in addition to a very appealing looking Sheilds.
Leave your brain at the door and sit back for some good old fashioned popcorn choming fun. I really do like this adventure romance movie. Plus its great to see Sir John Mills in one of his later roles.
