Silly costume adventure has Payne leading a detachment of US Marines and a company of Greek mercenary cavalry under da Silva against the marauding Barbary pirates commanded by stylish pasha Reed. O'Hara is the daughter of a French diplomat and Reed's ward, but she disguises herself as a
dancing girl and crosses the desert with dashing lieutenant Payne. Pretty but mostly worthless effort from Paramount's resident B movie unit, Pine and Thomas (nicknamed the "Dollar Bills" for their low budget ways), this film takes major liberties with history and actually owes more to World War
II movie cliches than the real business of the Marines putting down the Barbary pirates ...
