The White Sheik, also known as King's Mate, is a 1928 British silent adventure film directed by Harley Knoles and starring Lillian Hall-Davis, Jameson Thomas and Warwick Ward.[1] It was based on the novel King's Mate by Rosita Forbes.


While spending the winter in the Moroccan city of Fez young Englishwoman Rosemary encounters a vile man Martengo who tries to force his attentions on her. Escaping to the desert she becomes lost and is rescued by a mysterious Englishman known as the White Sheik.



For its December 1929 New York City premiere at the Little Carnegie Playhouse[2] it was accompanied by the Hal Roach Studios comedy Feed ’em and Weep[3] and the Universum Film AG documentary short Strange Prayers.[4]


The New York Times reviewer Mordaunt Hall called the film "amateurish" and "boring", with characters he thought "as silly a lot as have ever darted to and fro on the screen."[2]
