| Clever script with cool-headed sultan bringing foreign powers to bay
One of Arliss' last efforts. He again (as in THE GREEN GODDESS) plays a sultan, one who is effortlessly adept at playing games of chess - with foreign powers, each of which thinks it is clever enough to manipulate him as ruler of a small but strategic kingdom. They ought to have looked more closely at the casting and know they could never come out on top with Arliss in the role.

He is charming, clever, a master strategist, and does another impeccable job. Lucie Mannheim attempts to pull of a Dietrich impersonation and fails. The rest of the cast are acceptable.

The dvd print runs 62 minutes with a missing third reel, FYI.

Much fun and worth seeking out for a clever plot and a lesson in political maneuvering.
