On the way to Cairo, pilot Doug (Warren Douglas) has to make an emergency landing somewhere in the middle of nowhere, Iraq, and the only option that he and his two passengers, George (John Loder) and his estranged wife Tess (Ruth Ford) - who has of course long fallen in love with Doug - have is to try and make it to the next village, which is ruled by Sheik Ahmid (Paul Cavanagh).

Ahmid is a well-educated and perfectly charming man, who soon welcomes the three Americans as his guests of honour - but he is also a Nazi collaborator, a Devil Worshipper, and he has the hots for Tess, which is why he wants to get rid of the two men. Eventually, George, Doug and Tess manage to escape from the Sheik's clutches with some spare parts to get their radio running, and make it back to the airplane - where they have a shootout with the sheik's soldiers who kill George and take the other two back to Ahmid's palace.

Sheik Ahmid soon prepares to have his American guests sacrificed - when a squadron of American fighterplanes arrives, bombing the Sheik's city until he agrees to hand over his hostages. End.

Barry Bernard provides some chuckles as the Sheik's crooked but perfectly British butler.

 

Don't expect this film to portray Iraq in the 1940's even remotely accurately, after all the film's settings are actually little more than an Arabian Nights-style backdrop for a piece of World War II propaganda that has little meaning to the film's story as such other than provide some exotic flair. As a propaganda movie though, with all the limitations of the genre taken into account, Adventure in Iraq is still less than satisfying, a slickly produced but boringly told melodrama with a plot that could be told in half the time of the film's meager 64 minutes.

Not really worth your while.
