A fresh and entertaining low-budget Wayne picture with the Duke playing a newsreel cameraman. Wayne and partner Barclay are sent to cover a rebel uprising in the Arab country of Samari. Wayne is out to shoot footage of the rebel leader, Brokaw, and in the process encounters gun-runners,

spies, and Gaze, who becomes Wayne's romantic interest. Wayne gets the rebel leader on film and saves a British regiment from being massacred. The newsreel cameraman was a popular film subject in the era; the following year saw MGM's enormously successful TOO HOT TO HANDLE with Clark Gable and

Myrna Loy, in which Gable was a newsreel ace with his sidekick, Leo Carrillo.
