After escorting an Emir's daughter to her father's stronghold, French Foreign Legion Captain Gerard's unit joins an isolated Moroccan outpost facing imminent attack by rebel Bedouin tribes.
Second-unit director Richard Rosson traveled to Fort Tinihir in Morocco for location shooting. There he met 900 German members of the French Foreign Legion. They had all been members of Gen. Erwin Rommel's famed Afrika Korps during World War II. When the war ended, these men, who were now POWs under French control, were given a choice by the French to either enlist in the French Foreign Legion or return home to a now-ruined Germany. Most chose to sign on as legionnaires.

Capt. Paul Gerard: My duties have taken me into many strange places.

When Captain Gerard and Cara are sharing a meal on their journey she tells him "left hand, always" when he uses his right hand to pick up from the dish. This is totally incorrect. In the Middle East and parts of India the left hand is considered 'dirty' and is never used to pick up food.
