Rousing actioner set in the French Sudan of 1940, where a freshly arrived colonel (George Dolenz) finds his garrison command being regularly raided by rebellious Tuareg nomads. His one chance of brokering truce lies with an American gunrunner (Victor Mature) who offers his custom to both sides. Matters get complicated, though, when the mercenary falls for the officer's beautiful wife (Yvonne De Carlo). John Dehner, Leonard Mudie co-star under Jacques Tourneur's direction. 92 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
