Very hard to find original silent film movie theater herald for THE GARDEN OF ALLAH. The Garden of Allah is a 1916 American silent drama film directed by Colin Campbell and starring Helen Ware, Tom Santschi and Eugenie Besserer. It is based on the 1904 novel of the same title by Robert Smythe Hichens, adapted a number of times including a 1937 sound film starring Marlene Dietrich. Location shooting took place in the Mojave Desert. A print of the film survives in the George Eastman Museum.

"There at Beni-Mora, at the edge of the Sahara desert, the Sand Diviner foretold to Domini Enfilden, the English woman, what the threads of Fate had woven. It is impossible to combat fate - and Love is also blind! When Boris the stranger came, all else was as nothing to the woman who loved. And when the storm broke – when the sky suddenly darkened and the wind came - Domini and Boris began their honeymoon journey out into the sand dunes of the desert. Mystery lies coiled in the shining heart of the east, and the mystery of love seems there to overcast all other earthly things. The man and the woman were happy in the desert until – Came a day when the cup of remorse was drained to its dregs – came a day when the notes of love no longer sounded and there was reason for renunciation. And what did the woman do there in the desert with her great love? What would you do - a woman!"
