He had to have planned it because when we drove onto the dock the boat was there and the engine was running and you could see the water churning up the phosphorescence in the river, which was the only light there was because there was no moon, nor no electric light either in the shack where the dockmaster should have been sitting, nor on the boat itself, and certainly not from the car, yet everyone knew where everything was, and when the big Packard came down the ramp Mickey the driver braked it so that the wheels hardly rattled the boars, and when he pulled up alongside the gangway the doors were already open and they hustled Bo and the girl upside before they even made a shadow in all that darkness.

Two African children, brother and sister, are enslaved and sold to a desert prince who holds them captive in his walled palace. The boy uses his special rapport with the animal kingdom to engineer their escape.
Schmaltzy, but wonderfully produced and photographed tale with some amazing child - wild animal scenes.
On second view I still agree, but wouldn't call it that schmaltzy anymore.

Refusing to believe her story about cave-dwelling monsters, the sole survivor of a spelunking exploration gone horribly wrong is forced to follow the authorities back into the caves where something awaits.
