Non-stop adventure, romance and swashbuckling fun!

A lavishly colourful Arabian Nights-style epic where the Desert Hawk battles valiantly against the evil Prince Murad like a Robin Hood of the desert. In a plot replete with twists and deceits, scimitars and bazaars, and double and triple crosses, he meets all manner of foes – including Rock Hudson as the villainous Captain Ras!

Among an extremely colourful cast of characters there’s even an Aladdin, a Sinbad and, most important of all, the object of the Desert Hawk’s desire – the impossibly beautiful Princess Scheherazade.

Starring Richard Greene (Robin Hood), with Oscar nominee and Golden Globe winner Rock Hudson (Giant), Yvonne De Carlo (Salome, Where She Danced) and Jackie Gleason (The Jackie Gleason Show).
