Camels or Egypt

PostSat Jan 13, 2018 6:35 pm

I'm looking for silent film era scenes featuring Egypt or camels, etc. Any suggestions of film titles are greatly appreciated.

Real Egypt, or faked?

The Sheik and Son of the Sheik with Rudy Valentino certainly have camels in them.

Yes, I was going to mention them once the original poster answered my question as to whether he wants the real Egypt or if a fake one is acceptable. The Sheik films use fake ones.

He hasn't responded to any follow-up posters, so I will move on from this thread.

There are Egyptian scenes in SOULS FOR SALE (TCM runs it now and then), including a segment in an Egyptian silent film theatre.
