The story is set in fictional country in Middle East (probably Afghanistan and southeast Iran) in 1948. Mark Miller is stationed at the American Embassy and is given the assignment of an investigation to find a young woman, Ellen Jasper, also from the United States, who has disappeared after her marriage to Colonel Nazrullah several months previously. The film was not well received by James Michener as it strayed wildly from the plot of his book, - even eradicating its main character, a Nazi war criminal on the run who falls in love with the female lead character (this omission and other story changes stimulating legal action from Michener) . Mike Batt wrote the score, which has been the most successful element of the film, - remaining a bestseller for many years after the film's release. The movie starred Anthony Quinn, Jennifer O'Neil and Michael Sarrazin
