Movie Info

In the '20s, the Turkish empire was considered a lawless and barbaric place by Westerners who didn't understand the people's religion or their ways. Such civilized ignorance gave this part of the world an aura of mystery and decadence, which director Tod Browning captured in this tale of romance and adventure. American solider of fortune Captain Carlisle Pemberton (Wheeler Oakman) is trying to bring law and order to the desert with the aid of the Black Horse cavalry. In spite of himself, he falls in love with a Turkish beggar girl, Sari (Priscilla Dean). She sneaks into a mosque where she sees a murder being committed, and the killer, Sheik Achmet Bey (the effectively villainous Wallace Beery), tries to lure her to his harem. When this doesn't work, he tries to marry her by proxy, but Pemberton buys the proxy away, so that he, not the sheik, is married to Sari. The angry Achmet Bey kidnaps them both, but Sari escapes and brings in the Black Horse cavalry to save the day in a rousing finale.
