In ancient Egypt, the Pharaoh Khufu (Jack Hawkins) is obsessed with acquiring gold and plans to take it all with him into the "second life". To this end, he enlists the aid of Vashtar (James Robertson Justice), an architect whose people are enslaved in Egypt. The deal: build a robbery-proof tomb and the enslaved people will be freed. During the years that the pyramid is being built, Cyprian Princess Nellifer (Dame Joan Collins) becomes the Pharaoh's second wife, and she plots to prevent Khufu from taking his treasure with him when he dies, as well as helping him make the journey early.Written by

How can you have a great "swords and sandals" epic without Victor Mature and his gams? Perhaps by casting Joan Collins as a wickedly greedy princess with about a hundred costume changes. What can I say, I love this film. It's not even a guilty pleasure--I'll gladly watch it any Saturday afternoon. It's Hollywood at its best: a movie made just for the sheer enjoyment of watching movies. There's no deeper meaning or social agenda -- it's about a pyramid, an aging Pharaoh, a scheming woman, and a slave winning freedom for his people. What else does any picture need?
