The Wind and the Lion

The Wind and the Lion is a 1975 adventure film written and directed by John Milius. It starred Sean Connery, Candice Bergen, Brian Keith and John Huston. It was based somewhat on the real-life Perdicaris incident of 1904. This movie blends historic facts into a violent fictional adventure in which an American woman, Eden Perdicaris, and her two children are kidnapped by Berber brigand Mulai Ahmed er Raisuli, prompting U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt to send an armed invasion and rescue mission to Morocco. The film was produced by Herb Jaffe through Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and Columbia Pictures. ... more on Wikipedia
