You’ve got heard heard of "Sheena, Queen of the Jungle": Now meet "Gertie, Queen of the Desert" as portrayed by an ever pretty and delicate Nicole Kidman in Werner Herzog’s epic sandy biopic of English aristocrat Gertrude Bell, who turned a kind of feminine Lawrence of Arabia when she was enthralled by the purity of the lifestyle of the Bedouin nomads of the center japanese deserts and ventured on her personal into the inside to review their cultures first hand and hob- nob with the sheiks regardless of robust objections by the British governors in Cairo and Baghdad.
