Miss Paget's short dress inflated with air when she jumped from a high wall into the water below, feet first. Watch for a brief scene in which she pops back up to the surface, upside down. You can see her feet kicking near the surface of the water next to the wet fabric of her inflated dress. See more »

fun escapist eye candy
4 September 2012 | by grnhair2001See all my reviews

A pretty film with lead actors so beautiful, it almost hurts to look at them. Young Jeffrey Hunter and Debra Paget dazzle in this fun faux- Egyptian adventure/romance. Whether you are straight or gay, male or female, you should appreciate looking at them both.

This would be a great date movie (and I wish I could return to this time for just an evening to have a date to see it during its first run)- -it has adventure, romance, a quick-moving plot, and some comic relief. Dancing girls! Evil henchmen! Scimitar fights! What's not to like?

As another reviewer said, one of the problems with the the movie is the over-reliance on sets; it'd look even better with more outdoor scenes. In this way, it is of its time, and one of the few ways movies have improved is in use of outdoor and international settings.

Recommended. 6.5/10
