    Gary Cooper and his monotonic, Chemistry professor way of delivering his lines really took me out of this one... 13 years 5 months ago

    Worth the watch just for the first half hour, for Dietrich and also for a surprisingly authentic pre-code scene of a Muslim prayer, yes that's right, in a Hollywood movie.
    Unfortunately way too much of the story relies on Cooper's charm, which he doesn't showcase in this movie, making the rather predictable end quite unbelievable.
