Synopsis

Take a famed operetta scored by Sigmund Romberg, update its tale of romance and heroics with the then-current Nazi peril, include a lively cast and imaginative direction, burnish the burning desert sands with rich Technicolor® cinematography and voila! That's 1943's The Desert Song. Now add an immaculate film restoration and resolve rights issues that had long kept this work out of circulation and - at last - this widely unseen spectacle can be enjoyed by today's fans. Christmas in Connecticut's Dennis Morgan stars (and lends his melodic tenor to several tunes) as the elusive El Khobar, a mysterious man of action whose work as a cabaret piano player hides his identity as the leader of a bullet-frenzied fight against the Nazis' construction of a vital North African railroad. Irene Manning (Yankee Doodle Dandy) plays the strawberry-blonde songstress who catches the hero's eye.
