Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Columbia's The Desert Bride was adapted from The Adventuress, an original story by Ewart Adamson (whose other contributions to the studio included several Three Stooges comedies!) Betty Compson stars as Diane Duval, the niece of a British army officer stationed in Egypt. Two men vie for Diane's attention: Captain Maurice de Florimont (Allan Forrest), head of British Intelligence, and Kassim Ben Ali (Otto Matiesen), a scheming Arab chieftain. Eventually, Diane and De Florimont join forces to foil Kassim Ben Ali's plans to destroy the British outpost. The slam-bang finale features many more extras than was customary at pinchpenny Columbia Pictures.
