PG | | Adventure, Drama
After her father dies, young Dale takes his place in a trans-African auto race, but ends up being abducted by a desert sheik.
MGM was the one who invested and put up all of the money for this movie's advertising and post-production. This was also the last The Cannon Group, Inc. movie with which they were involved, calling it "Dry as the Sahara desert...it was awful."
Twice in the opening sequence, Dale (Brooke Shields) slides off the race course on a corner, and the wide view shows her race car hitting a hay bale barricade, but both times in a close-up shot inserted between the long views, her car hits a barricade made of tires.
