Wonderful Old-school Entertainment with Great British Actors
- She review by PV
I rented this film because I remembered watching it when aged maybe 10 or 11 on our black and white TV - the end scenes were SO memorable they stuck in my mind.
I love these old films - 1965 in this case - so liberated from the pc diversity obsessions of our modern pompous age!
Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee in this, and Bernard Cribbins! Plus hot totty in the form or Ursula Andrews.
Based on a Rider Haggard novel so lots of old school adventure in exotic lands and some hokum plot re Ancient Egypt.
And full-on African tribes - even #whiteface whiting up and authentic dancing - I'd love to know which tribe they are from because they are NOT African-Americans faking it and pretending to be Africans as in so many more modern movies.
I loved this. Loved it. 5 stars
