Sands Of The Desert DVD Cover

Charlie Drake plays a misunderstood, larger-than-life travel agency clerk, Charles Sands, who is sent to the desert to supervise the opening of one of his firm's new investments: Bossom's Bedouin Holiday Camp. What Charlie doesn't know is that a ruthless Arab sheikh wants the land on which the camp is being built, because he believes there's oil in the dunes!

The irrepressible star of The Worker heads an impressive cast – including superior screen villain Peter Arne and Upstairs, Downstairs regular Raymond Huntley – in this hilarious, early '60s comedy feature, presented here in a brand new transfer from original film elements in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.
