Flame of Araby (AKA Flame of the Desert) is a 1951 swashbuckler film starring Jeff Chandler and Maureen O'Hara. British film star Maxwell Reed made his American film debut in the picture. Locations were shot in Lone Pine, California.
Bedouin chief Tamerlaine (Jeff Chandler) is engaged in the hunt for a legendary black stallion. Also chasing the prize steed is Tunisian Princess Tanya (Maureen O'Hara), who desires to capture the horse to race in competition against hated brothers Borka (Lon Chaney) and Hakim (Buddy Baer), so she will not be forced to marry one of them. After a prolonged and deadly rivalry, Tamerlaine decides to join forces with Tanya to trap the stallion - and in the process, the two fall in love.
