A fantastic and exciting movie, especially for a young man in 1953. I remember it well. Grayson, so beautiful, and MacRae, great voice.

The Desert Song is a 1953 film version in Technicolor of Sigmund Romberg's operetta. It is the third film version of the operetta, the third made by Warner Brothers, and the second in full three-strip Technicolor. Although it was released in 1953, it was not made in widescreen; at that time Twentieth-Century Fox held the rights to Cinemascope, which was introduced that year in the film The Robe.
