Germany's first CinemaScrope feature, Oase (Oasis) was directed by France's Yves Allegret and distributed by Hollywood's 20th Century-Fox. Michele Morgan and Cornell Borchers stars as Francoisce and Karin, a pair of gorgeous lady smugglers. The ladies are sent by their respective gangs to halt the activities of novice gold smuggler Antoine (Carl Raddatz). Francoise gums up the plan by falling in love with Antoine, while Karin remains loyal to her compatriots. As it turns out, only Antoine emerges the winner in this contretemps. The film's title refers to its locale, a way station in the desert from which Antoine conducts his illicit operation.
