| Bengazi doesn't sizzle, it fizzles
Our protagonists meet at a gin joint located in North Africa. With some jaunty piano music playing in the background, they trade lines. It might remind you of another film starring Bogie.

The local police authority tries to intervene in the plot, working from his noirish office, where a desk fan casts long shadows.

The female lead, played by Mala Powers, sports an accent and some resemblance to Ingrid Bergman.

Eventually, the action moves from its Casablanca-like setting to the middle of the vast desert, where an old mosque is being swallowed by the sands next to a small oasis. It's treasure they seek.

Greed drives this vehicle about selfishness and sacrifice and what might even be love. The "action", if we can call it that, is sparse. The actors are less than compelling. And the plot of this second feature offers no one you might consider a hero.
