 The DVD Journal | Reviews : The Sheik / The Son of the Sheik: Special Edition
The Sheik is populated by "Arabs" who look just like Southern Californians, and its comic-book idealization of the Sahara as a place "where the children of Araby dwell in happy ignorance" is now even less culturally sensitive than it was in the '20s.
The elder Sheik has harsh parental words with his impulsive boy, and soon the son vanquishes the bad guys and wins the heart (etc.) of his true love.
The Son of the Sheik is from a 1937 reissue print taken from the original negative, with a few shots replaced from later material, and remains untinted.

 Professional Wrestling Online Museum - Ring Chronicle Hall of Fame Inductee - The Sheik
Part of the key to The Sheik's fame (aside from his brutality) was that he wrestled in territories spanning the entire country, at a time when wrestling was very regionalized.
With Abdullah's fork in hand, and The Sheik with his trusty jagged piece of wood, the two wrestling madmen ripped and tore into each other -- and did the same to the teams they were paired against -- in arenas around the country with a furor and vengeance nearly unparalleled in the history of wrestling.
During his 30 years in pro wrestling, The Sheik not only created an "Arabian" character that was emulated many times over, but also set a standard of violence and mayhem inside the ring that few have ever been able to match.

 Duncan Sheik: Phantom Moon (2001): Reviews
This is Duncan Sheik at his most orchestrally, acoustically indulgent, and it's a lovely, haunting effort.
But Sheik's delivery lacks the emotional depth of his U.K. models: Nick Drake, David Sylvian and the Blue Nile couldn't conceal their pain behind lush arrangements.
Duncan Sheik, one of music's hidden treasures, has seamlessly mended an extraordinary acoustic album which echoes the soulful yearning of the folk era of the 70's combined with a shimmering atmosphere of solitude completely seperate from today's ostentatiously homogenous music industry.

Sheik Omar Abdel-Rahman is a blind Muslim cleric whose involvement with terrorism goes back at least as far as the October 1981 assassination of Egyptian President Anwar el-Sadat, whom he did not consider an authentic Muslim (and whose killing he therefore deemed justified) because of Sadat's signing of a 1979 peace agreement with Israel.
Abdel-Rahman was convicted (along with nine co-defendants) for his role in the conspiracy to plant the bombs, and in 1996 he was given a life sentence without the possibility of parole.
