Adventure in Sahara: Directed by D. Ross Lederman. With Paul Kelly, C. Henry Gordon, Lorna Gray, Robert Fiske. Agadez is a lonely French outpost baking under the desert sun and commanded by the cruel and oppressive Captain Savatt (C. Henry Gordon). To it comes, at his own request, Legionnaire Jim Wilson (Paul Kelly soon followed by his fiancée, Carla Preston (Lorna Gray), who has been tracing him from post to post. Legionnaires seize the fort and turn Savitt loose in the Arab-haunted desert with only a fraction of the water and food needed to get back to civilization. But Savitt gets through and returns to the fort at the head of an avenging troop of men. But Arabs surround Savitt and his men, and the mutineers, knowing that to leave the fort and aid them means their own death…

“Sam (Samuel) Fuller and Maxwell Shane, both noted for writing some better-than-average originals, didnu0026#39;t waste much in the way of creative juices on this one. Do away with the band of gritty-but-game Arabs, sprinkle some water around Fort Agadez and the whole movie would be heading straight for Pitcarin Island.”
