Distributed in the U.S. by Joseph Brenner Associates, Island of Allah is a stock-footage salad assembled by Richard Lyford. Drawing from several earlier sources, this semi-documentary attempts to trace the history of the Arab people. The dramatized sequences are never quite as impressive as the "straight" footage drawn from life. Fredric March's narration brings a soupcon of cohesiveness to the project. While it didn't receive much theatrical play, Island of Allah became a television perennial less than a year after its release.
