Synopsis

Johnny Tyronne is a motion picture and recording star, who is kidnapped by a band of assassins while on a personal appearance tour of the Middle East. Suddenly he finds himself involved in a plot to murder the king, becomes the rescuing hero of maidens in distress, flings himself into adventure with a gang of pickpockets,and rogues. Johnny also finds time to ward off the advances of tlie predatory Aishah and falls in love with the Princess Shalimar.
It all turns out merrily and melodically well, with Johnny saving the king from assassination, winning the beautiful princess and, at the finish, returns to the U.S.A, with an Oriental dancing troupe which becomes a part of his Las Vegas act.
