Sahara was released in 1983 and stars Brooke Shields (The Blue Lagoon), Lambert Wilson (who interestingly also starred in the similarly titled 2005 action film), Horst Bucholz (The Magnificent Seven), John Rhys-Davies (Raiders of the Lost Ark), and Ronald Lacey (Raiders of the Lost Ark). This superstar-laced film is set during the automobile racing obsession of 1927. Sahara centers on a young American heiress named Dale (Brooke Shields) whose father has only recently passed away. She makes the decision to pose as her deceased father in order to participate in one such automobile race through the Sahara desert. All does not go as planned. In the course of this race she encounters obstacles, adventures, war, kidnapping, and romance. Along these many adventures she will encounter various foes and friends such as Jaffar (Wilson), Von Glessing (Bucholz), Rasoul (Rhys-Davies), and Beg (Lacey).
