In this Hal Roach one-reel comedy, Stan Laurel and James Finlayson play explorers who happen on a sumptuous Egyptian palace, which they believe to be a museum. Meanwhile, a tourist (Katherine Grant) is captured by a band of Arabs. After a while, the two explorers figure out that not only are they not in a museum, they are in grave danger of being beheaded. The only way to escape is to marry the princess who lives at the palace. Unfortunately, she's anything but attractive, but that doesn't stop Stan and his pal from battling over the right to her hand. In the fracas, the princess is shoved into the pool and the explorers make a frantic escape. They run into the tourist, who has escaped from the Arabs, and she shows the explorers the way to leave the palace. The name Scorching Sands was a play on the title of a sheik film, Burning Sands, which came out the year before and starred Milton Sills. ~ Janiss Garza, All Movie Guide
