The Desert Song


The content on this page is provided by a Time Out partner.

A civil war between Morocco's Berber and Arab populations provides the backdrop for this romantic musical adventure. Headstrong Margot (Kathryn Grayson) and her father, Gen. Birabeau (Ray Collins), arrive from Paris to a remote Foreign Legion outpost. The powerful Sheik Yousseff (Raymond Massey) has devised a scheme to discredit the mysterious warlord El Khobar by having his men attack the fort disguised as Berbers -- a plan Margot and her tutor, Paul Bonnard (Gordon MacRae), attempt to foil.
