In his final film performance before dying in 1926, Rudolph Valentino tackles two roles, as a father and his son. Ahmed, the son of an Arab sheik and a kidnapped English gentlewoman, loves local dancing girl Yasmin . When he slips out of his father's heavily guarded compound to woo her, he is kidnapped and held for ransom by a group of bandits led by Yasmin's father and Ghabah, the Moor to whom she is betrothed.
