In Tangier on October 15, 1904, Arab chief Raisuli (Connery) and his army kidnapped American widow Mrs. Pedecaris (Bergen) and her two children. As President Roosevelt (Keith) made attempts to free Mrs. Pedecaris and her family, the strong and willful woman came to understand the man who had kidnapped her. And when Raisuli himself ended up in trouble, Mrs. Pedecaris was there to save him. (Tricia Littrell)
The anamorphically enhanced 2.40:1 DVD has a bit of a dated appearance that can be a bit soft at times. Otherwise images exhibit satisfying sharpness and details can be nicely rendered. Colors are warm and nicely saturated, though fleshtones appear brownish at times. The source element is revealing of some scratches and flecks of dirt, as well as some minor film grain. Finer details, like those at the Palace in Tangier, are slightly smeared and occasionally break up with pixelization. Edge enhancement can also be a problem in the higher contrast scenes.
