WWII romance mystery (scripted by Robin Maugham and Bryan Forbes) has the folk at the ancestral seat worried when son and heir Steel fails to return home from the North African campaign. Brother Sinden is packed off to discover that he's fallen for a sheikh's daughter and thrown in his lot with the bedouin. Director Hurst and a stiff cast manage to flatten the interest out of potentially intriguing material.
