Brian Desmond Hurst - The Black Tent (1956)
The Black Tent is essentially a tale of forbidden romance set among the heady backdrop of World War II's North African campaign of the early 1940s. The film stars Anthony Steel as Captain David Holland, a loyal British soldier who finds himself in the thick of intense military action in the desert. Wounded in a brutal tank attack, David escapes with the help of some Bedouin tribesmen.
The injured soldier is nursed back to health and takes up with the nomadic desert dwellers, thanks in no small part to the fact that he has fallen for the sheik's daughter Mabrouka ben Yussef (played by beautiful Italian actress Anna-Maria Sandri). Given the blessing of the sheikh, the pair soon wed and sire a half-British, half-Libyan son.
