As World War II rages, District Commisioner Crawford (Bruce Cabot) and British Army officer Major Coombs (George Sanders) get wind of a plot by the Nazis to arm violent North African tribes and set them upon the Allied forces. An exotic, mysterious caravan mistress (Gene Tierney) arrives at their isolated outpost, but is she a friend, or is it her extensive trading network that the Nazis are using to move their weapons shipments?

SUNDOWN is British colonial troops and their valiant native allies standing fast against those who would bring down Britain. It's got a more interesting cast of characters than many of these films and the cast is excellent. The film also benefits from a more exotic locale than many of these films, and the gorgeous photography takes full advantage of this, as does the script.

Aside from the great camera work, another reason to see SUNDOWN is the presence of the absolutely gorgeous Gene Tierney. She truly is one of the most beautiful actresses to ever appear on film, and she doesn't do a whole lot more than walk around looking exotic and gorgeous here. If you haven't seen Tierney do majestically beautiful, you need to see this movie.
