The Wind and the Lion

1904: Kidnapped by Sean Connery in Morocco, Candace Bergen develops a touch of Stockholm syndrome while waiting for the American president to send in the Marines to rescue her (because there are German, British, and French troops in the way – how international). Ridiculous as this sounds, it’s based on a true story known as the Perdicaris Incident, and the film remains a top seller that’s loved by fans.

Director: John Milius

Starring: Brian Keith, Candice Bergen, John Huston, Sean Connery
