She's a Sheik is a 1927 American silent comedy adventure film produced and distributed by Paramount Pictures and starring Bebe Daniels. This film is possibly lost.[1][2] Near the end of Bebe Daniels' 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]


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.
