"A first-class adventure! Exotic background, action, mystery and intrigue." -The Hollywood Reporter

Told against the sweeping panoramas of the Sahara desert, this star-studded epic features an exotic mix of action, suspense, and romance. Famed for its "stunning" (The Hollywood Reporter) location cinematography, Legend of the Lost delivers a caravan of excitement- with the indomitable John Wayne leading the way.

Wayne is Joe January, a hard drinking, hard living guide. When Paul Bonnard (Rossano Brazzi) hires him to find his father and a legendary lost treasure, the two set out into the isolated wasteland of the North African desert. Joining them is Dita (Sophia Loren), a prostitute desperate to find a new life who comes between both men as they battle for survival.... and their souls.
