Sahara is a 1983 British-American adventure drama film directed by Andrew McLaglen and starring Brooke Shields, Lambert Wilson, Horst Buchholz, John Rhys-Davies, and John Mills. The original music score was composed by Ennio Morricone.

The film's tagline is "She challenged the desert, its men, their passions and ignited a bold adventure."

Plot[edit]

The setting is in the year 1927. After her father dies, a young American heiress, Dale disguises herself as a man and takes the place of her father in an international car race through the Sahara. Dale is taken prisoner by Rasoul, but is rescued by Jaffar. However, more trouble awaits her before she can finish the race. Dale falls in love with Jaffar and marries him. Rasoul ends up dying in the end. She wins the race, becoming the first woman to win this international car race.

Cast[edit]

Production[edit]

Sahara was partially filmed in Israel.[3][4]

Reception[edit]

At an alleged $25 million budget, Sahara was a massive box office bomb, grossing only $1,402,962 in the domestic box office.[2]

Accolades[edit]

At the 1984 Razzies, Brooke Shields was nominated for Worst Actress and won Worst Supporting Actor as "Brooke Shields (with a moustache)", making her the first and only actress to win this award.[5]

Legacy[edit]

Over 20 years later, Lambert Wilson would have a major role in 2005's Sahara, a film based on Clive Cussler's novel of the same name.
