The Castle in the Desert, and Hedy Lamarr’s Baby Father

On January 9, 1939, famous actress Hedy Lamarr gave birth to a baby boy, two years after her divorce from her first husband. The name on the birth certificate was James Lamarr Loder, and three months later she would get married, but not to John Loder the father of her baby. She married Gene Markey on March 4, 1939, and all of her life she would insist that James was adopted, and not her birth son.

Hedy Lamarr and Gene Markey would get divorced a year later, leaving son Jimmy with Hedy. Three years later, just a few months before this movie premiered, John Loder would marry Hedy Lamarr and formally adopt their son James. John Loder and Hedy Lamarr would then have two more children, Anthony and Denise Loder.

In 1947 John Loder and Hedy Lamarr were divorced, leaving all three children to Hedy Lamarr. Son James was 8 years old. Three years later, when her first son James was eleven, she sent him to boarding school, and he was never to see his birth-mother again.

Hedy Lamarr died in 1999, leaving the bulk of her estate to her two children born during her marriage to John Loder, with nothing to son James, who at the time was 60 years old and working as a night shift security guard on a riverboat casino in Council Bluffs, Iowa. James would sue the estate, and be awarded fifty thousand dollars, while his younger brother and sister inherited millions.

In this adventure their father, actor John Loder, is a whiskey loving British married man heading to Cairo with his wife, courtesy of an airplane pilot that was previously one of the famous Flying Tigers fighting in China. Unfortunately, while flying over Iraq, the plane’s gas line is ruptured and the three must land in the desert, a few miles from the desert palace of Sheik Ahmid Bel Nor. They are welcomed by the Sheik, but then learn that they are considered heathen ‘white goats’ and will be sacrificed the next day. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
