Good for a laugh
7 September 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Caught us by surprise back in '47. Expected the usual sword and slave girl opus from the period, which was the prime of Maria Montez, Turhan Bey, etc. Turns out to be a farce (deliberate) and apt satire of the genre (I love to say genre). It's worth watching for the climactic battle scenes alone.
