The police van transporting him to the prison is attacked by Sharif’s fanatical followers. Ahmed, the leader of the students’ revolt frees Sharif along with three other prisoners. Among them is Huston, an American who has embezzled money from the Zahrain Oil Company. The fugitives capture an ambulance and its nurse, Laila. They flee from the city toward the border but during their trek across the desert, the convict Hassan is killed in a police ambush. A romance starts between Ahmed, the student leader and Laila, the ambulance nurse. Unfortunately, Ahmed is later killed by a government strafing fighter plane. Later, Tahar, another convict, is also killed.The three lone survivors are Laila, Sharif and Huston. Will they reach their destination?
Plot: Yul Brynner plays political leader Sharif who is sprung from a police van on his way to a firing squad by young loyalists led by Sal Mineo. Yul and the other prisoners kidnap an ambulance and head into the Arabian desert with the police in hot pursuit. All the performances are magnificent: Sal Mineo showing his acting talents, Jack Warden in a wiseguy performance as an employee of Zahrain oil who was involved in embezzlement, Anthony Caruso as a slimy psychotic and the underrated Madlyn Rhue as a nurse who becomes emotionally involved in the proceedings.

Good cast, promising plot, reasonably exciting!
This is one of the movies that I saw in Paramount’s theatrette, along with twenty or thirty of the city’s other critics and opinion-makers. I stopped attending these screenings and elected to see new releases in a regular cinema instead, because the mood at the theatrette was nearly always negative. The one exception was “Hatari” (1962), which I thought was an absolutely dreadful movie. But they all loved it! So that was the last time I attended any of Paramount’s preview screenings. Anyway, I found “Escape from Zahrain” quite exciting. Yul Brynner never made a bad movie in his life. And in this one, he receives great support from Jack Warden, Madlyn Rhue (whatever happened to her?) and Sal Mineo. (Oddly, although he is listed second to Brynner in the Official Cast, Sal Mineo is NOT credited in any of Paramount’s posters, artwork or newspaper ads).
