Storyline

A young woman visits her boyfriend, an archaeologist, at the site in Egypt where he is digging up ancient artifacts. Her frustration mounts when it appears that he is more interested in old bones and mummies than he is in the fact that she's traveled thousands of miles to see him. However, there are three men at the site who don't share her boyfriend's attitude towards her, and they make their intentions known. Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com

Leatrice For The Ages
5 September 2003 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

Leatrice Joy makes this film, set in modern Egypt, an intense and unusual experience. She transforms a bare bones script about a research team on an archaeological mission, into an aptly titled semi-erotic fantasy, quite titillating for its time. One can easily see why Cecil B. DeMille wanted to hang on to her as an actress for his films, and why he didn't want her to give it up to enjoy domestic bliss with John Gilbert (if such a pipe dream was ever possible anyway). As one cameraman remarked: "she has no bad sides". She photographed well from every angle. You can take Leatrice Joy out of the silent era, pluck her down in 2003, and she'd fit right in with a Gwyneth Paltrow.

It almost hurts to see her character dying for some attention from her scientist beau. How dumb can a man be, to prefer some old pottery to Leatrice's gorgeous frame? Eventually a near-death experience brings the two lovers together, and despite the humorous touches from several secondary characters intruding on them at the end, one cannot help but be moved at Leatrice's sublime happiness, when her lover places his head on her breast, and the fade out takes place.
