Synopsis by Mark Deming

In this action-adventure opus, Deucalion (Warner Baxter), Machwurth (Noah Beery), Mordiconi (C. Henry Gordon) and Biloxi (George Cooper) are four members of a desert patrol fighting off godless villains amidst the sand dunes. The four soldiers are lured away from their mission by Eleanore (Myrna Loy), a beautiful but dangerous women who persuades them to abandon their cause and join forces with the enemy. In time, Deucalion and his men discover the evil that lurks beneath Eleanore's seductive exterior, but have they come to their senses in time to rejoin their comrades before the cause is lost? Keep an eye peeled for a pre-Dracula Bela Lugosi, who plays one of the bad guys (no great surprise there).
