Jewel of the Sahara is a 2001 film starring Gerard Butler, Clifford David as the old Francois Renard and Peter Franzén as the young Francois Renard. ‘Jewel of the Sahara’ is comedy / short / fantasy film directed by Ariel Vromen. He also wrote the screenplay, was the executive producer and edited the film. The movie was made by Keyser Productions.


Set in a French Foreign Legion Camp circa 1954, the film follows the fantasies of a British Captain, desperately missing his home and wife. The captain is caught in an embarrassing situation caused by a combination of the monotonous, hot dreary surroundings, not grasping the workings of the Foreign Legion, and his smoldering desire created by his wife's lustful love letters, all of which is befuddled by his use of drugs.
