A mild-mannered British travel agency clerk gets the brilliant idea of opening up a desert resort. He goes out to the Mideast and immediately gets himself into trouble with a local sheikh. Drake wants to put his resort on some oil-rich land, which the sheikh won't allow. This leads to a

near war between two rival groups, but Drake unwittingly stops them from fighting and gets the land. Of course, it's loaded with oil, which pleases his boss no end. SANDS OF THE DESERT is a mildly amusing comedy that never really delivers its laugh quota, due primarily to its uneven script. Drake,
