Young, lovely Naila becomes queen of the ancient Egyptian kingdom of Khemis when her father is killed in a slave revolt. Continuing her penchant for going incognito among the people, she seeks out rebel leader Herua. But through palace treachery, she herself is captured and enslaved. After various adventures, she finds herself rescued by (and attracted to) the very rebel she was seeking. Will gratitude or revenge win out?



During development the film was called The Queen of the Nile.[5] It was described as a "successor to Arabian Nights".[6]

Production began in June 1944.[7] In January of the following year the title was changed to Sudan.[8]

It was the one collaboration between Montez and Hall where she wound up with another man at the end (Bey).[9]
