Legion of Missing Men
Legion of Missing Men was one of three Monogram "specials" produced in 1937 by I. E. Chadwick. Foreign legion officer Bob Carter (Ralph Forbes) and his younger brother Don (Ben Alexander) vie for the attentions of sexy cabaret singer Nina (Halla Linda). This rivalry is forgotten when they're both captured and tortured by the Arabs. The one new element of this film is the identity of the brother who gives up the girl and gets killed (it won't be revealed here, but it is quite a switch from the usual cliché). By the way, Ralph Forbes was one of the stars of the 1927 version of Beau Geste, from which Legion of Missing Men steals shamelessly. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Adventures in Iraq
Its wartime setting notwithstanding, the fast-paced Warner Bros. B-picture Adventures in Iraq is a remake of the 1930 George Arliss vehicle The Green Goddess, with much of the original dialogue intact. Forced to making a landing in the Syrian desert, pilot Doug Everett (Warren Douglas) and his passengers George and Tess Torrence (John Loder, Ruth Ford), find themselves the unwilling guests of Sheik Ahmid Bel Nor (Paul Cavanagh, in the George Arliss role). The civilized but deadly Sheik intends to hold the threesome as hostages to prevent the execution of his three Nazi-spy brothers by the British. After several desperate escape attempts, the trio is prepared for human sacrifice by the ruthless Shiek. The ending is substantially the same as in The Green Goddess. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
