Monumental Italian adventure epic...
3 January 2004 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

In 1570, the Turks lay siege to the Mediterranean city of Famagusta. In order to procure military help and supplies, Marcello Corner (Adriano Rimoldi), a young soldier, is sent on a secret mission to Venice. While he is gone, his fiancée (Carla Candiani) fights a joust with Moulai El Kader, the "Lion of Damascus" (Carlo Ninchi) and wins, sparing his life. When, due to an act of treachery, Corner is taken prisoner by the Turks, she finds that she must appeal to Kader for his freedom. However, the traitor Lachinsky has other plans for them. This film is important, in that it represents what Italy was doing in the adventure genre during the period of Mussolini's supremacy. It retains traces of the great silent epics, and was quite a success when first released. The miniature models were designed by Domenico Gaido, the same man responsible for directing the 1914 version of "Salambo." Once in a while, this still shows up on Italian TV.
