After a two-year hiatus, Mike Davis, returns to the same African city where he was tortured and left for dead at the hands of a sadistic police commandant.

A diamond heist picture set in the African desert. Burt Lancaster plays a he-man hunting guide who is seeking to settle a past wrong (torture) meted out by a wicked police chief, Paul Henreid. Toss in some French cheesecake (Corinne Calvet) and a whimsical capitalist (Claude Rains) and you have ROPE OF SAND. Rains' performance is the most interesting thing about the film.
