And beach sand in Mindbender, where there is also a landmine.

Russell + the desert = ? Now that would make an interesting combination. I can't remember Russell ever setting one of his films in a desert, except for that one scene in "Valentino." The nearest he and sand have come is beach sand, such as that seen in "Tommy," "French Dressing," etc.

"As for cinema versions of the novel, the one that most famously got away is Voss, White's 1957 novel, inspired by the diaries of explorer Ludwig Leichhardt. First Ken Russell, then Joseph Losey, were in the frame to direct. Playwright David Mercer wrote a script: Donald Sutherland and Maximilian Schell were mentioned as lead"
