Tagline: They loved each other with the fierceness of those who have been denied love!

Plot: In THE GARDEN OF ALLAH, Domini, a society girl (Marlene Dietrich) mourning the death of her father, travels to the Sahara. There she finds romance with Boris, a monk (Charles Boyer) who has recently abandoned the monastic life but remains torn between religious devotion and worldly desire, particularly desire for the exceptionally alluring Domini. Dietrich was photographed so beautifully that the cameramen won special Oscars for this early Technicolor film.
