Hotel Sahara (DVD)
Ken Annakin directs this 1950s Hollywood comedy classic starring Yvonne De Carlo, Peter Ustinov and David Tomlinson
The Hotel Sahara, located in the middle of the desert oasis, is run by husband and wife team Emad and Yasmin Pallas (Ustinov and De Carlo).
As the devastation of World War II reaches North Africa, and the hotel quickly empties, Yasmin takes it upon herself to figure out a way to save the hotel from destruction.
Both Emad and Yasmin are caught between the warring armies as they try to run their hotel, constantly forced to switch their political allegiances to whichever army happens to control the area at the time.
