Sometimes goofy, sometimes creepy, occasionally romantic but always entertaining. Rudolph Valentino is a sheik who falls for an Englishwoman, Agnes Ayres. What do you do when the lady you love thinks you’re a creep? Kidnap her and confirm all her suspicions, of course!
This film reportedly had women fainting in the aisles. Modern women are more likely to be rolling in the aisles with laughter. An amiably clueless kitsch fest. Your mileage may vary but what can I say? I love MST3K.
How does it end? Hover or tap below for a spoiler.Our heroine realizes that kidnapping is okay if the criminal is handsome. Anyway, he’s not really an Arab. Interracial romance averted (yes, people were really worried about that back then), the happy couple is united.
If it were a dessert it would be: Mayonnaise Cake. Weird ingredients but it somehow tastes good.
Availability: Released on DVD and Bluray.
