A grand tale of adventure in the Sahara Desert, and a young woman who travels from England to the Middle East, this novel was the basis for the 1936 film that was produced by David O. Selznick, directed by Richard Boleslawski, and starred Marlene Dietrich, Charles Boyer, and Basil Rathbone. The film received two Academy Award nominations and received an Honorary Award for the color cinematography. Earlier it was filmed twice as a silent film, including a 1927 MGM production, directed by Rex Ingram, starring Alice Terry (Ingram's wife) and Ivan Petrovich. The early first silent film version starred Helen Ware, Thomas Santschi, Al W. Filson, and Eugenie Besserer.
The author is also writer of "The Paradine Case" which was later filmed by Alfred Hitchcock.
