Love is where you find it . . .

American soldier Paul Dumont, played by Ralph Byrd, is in France boarding a ship headed for Senegal, Africa to help train African French Foreign Legionnaires to parachute jump to trouble spots when the Arabs attack the natives. He will be working with his best friend French Colonel Jean Bridaux, played by George Lynn. On board the ship headed for Senegal Paul wants to have one more shipboard romance before immersing himself in the affairs of the French Foreign Legion for the next two years. On board ship he quickly meets and targets French beauty Helene Laroche, played by Lorna Gray, and although she initially rejects his advances, by the time the ship lands in Senegal she is putty in his hands. Unfortunately when the ship lands she quickly gets off the ship and disappears, so the forlorn soldier gets off the ship and heads for the French Foreign Legion camp to train the Senegal soldiers to jump out of perfectly good airplanes. When he arrives he meets his best friend Jean Bridaux and when they have dinner with the Colonel Paul discovers that his shipboard romance gal is there and will be wed to his best friend soon. Amid the training and time at the fort there are awkward moments when the love between Paul and Helene is obvious to us, if not to her intended and Paul's best friend Jean. Things come to a head when Helene and Paul are both kidnapped by an angry Sheik and headed for an ugly death and it is up to best friend and fiancé Jean Bridaux to save his soon-to-be wife and the man she now loves from the angry Arabs. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter on it and enjoy the show.
