She's a Sheik is a 1927 silent film comedy adventure produced and distributed by Paramount Pictures and starring Bebe Daniels. This film is possibly lost. [1] [2] However near the end of Bebe Daniels's life in 1971, the National Film Theatre, London, honored her with a screening of this film but it is unclear what has happened to the print since her death.[3]

Story[edit]

Likable sendup comedy uses many of the elements and pokes fun at the Valentino 'sheik' films with the exception that a woman, played by Bebe Daniels, is the protagonist
