Reporter Mike Malone (Walter Woolf King) has found out Nazi Germany is delivering weapons to the Arabs in Libya so that they can rise against their British oppressors,  & has stolen a German gun to corroborate his story. Unfortunately though he has to hide the weapon in Nancy Brooks' (Joan Woodbury) hotelroom, & when he demands it back in order to show the British consul Forbes (H.B.Warner) she denies ever having sen either the gun or Malone. Forbes thinks him a maniac, & even secret service agent Phil Graham (Howard Banks), who shows more symoathetic to his cause, tells him to stay out of the whole affair.

It seems the only one who is really trying to help him is the Brooklyn-bred fake Arab horsethief Parkyarkarkus (Harry Parker), who does offer an incredible amount of help & advice along the way.

However, everything might be slightly different from what Malone might think, since Nancy Brooks is actually dating Sheik David (Duncan Renaldo), & it is thought that only thanks to her charms he hasn'T ordered an uprising - much to the dismay of German trader Streyer (Wilhelm von Brincken), who is of course behind the weapons deal) & David's second in command Ibrahim (George J.Lewis), who would much rather like to be first in command.

Unrelentlessly, Malone enters sheik David's camp to find proof for his story, but of course he is soon arrested & has to endure the torture of the spears. Meanwhile Streyer & Ibrahim convince David that his girlfriend Nancy is in cahoots with Malone, so he confines her to her tent, but when they try to persuade him to start an uprising right away, he refuses, so Streyer shoots him in cold blood.

Parkyarkarkus finally manages to free Malone, but it seems to be too late since Ibrahim has already headed for the capital to give an inflammatory speech.

But of course Malone has still got an ace up his sleeve: David is not really dead, but a medallion has stopped his fatal bullet & they head for the capital as well to stop the revolt, David with his words - & the power he stil has over his people -, Malone with a revolver which he has to use when Ibrahim wants to throw a knife at David.

& Streyer ?

Parkyarkarkus, who turns out to be an American secret agent, has convinced him to committ suicide.

Oh yes, & in the end, Malone gets the girl, Nancy.


Of course, political naivité rules in this wartime effort to tell an espionage story, & seen from the standpouint of the jaded early-21st-century urban audience, there isn't an ounce of political correctness in this movie (starting from the somewhat pejorative depiction of the Arabs to theglorification of Britishb colonialism). However, this movie was not made in the eearly 21st century, so the standards do of course not apply here.

The movie as such is a rather entertaining & lighthearted spystory - even if the attempts of Walter Woolf King to do Groucho Marx-lines are rather second-rate - that doesn't take its pedestrian story too seriously, moves at a relatively fast pace &, thanks to massive use of footage from other productins, does look a tad more polished than other comparable PRC-output.
