Storyline

Photographed and produced by both Jackson Leighter...and his wife...and, while not wishing to disillusion those who state this has only been seen at film festivals, this clinker of a travelogue was booked and seen in thousands of theatres in 1954. It follows Rita Hayworth and Prince Aly Kahn---with all the production value of a home-movie made by Joe Blow---through their wedding trip, which started at the long-lost city of Pompeii, Italy, preceded to Athens and then to Cairo.They and their retinue move up the Nile to Luxor and into the African domain of Aly's father, the Aga Kahn---quick, add him to the cast---spiritual leader of millions of Ismaelis. Then onward to Uganda, Tanganyika, and into the Congo. Those expecting to see intimate views of the royal couple are in for a disappointment...they do not even get as cozy as a hand-shake. Rita would have been well-advised to have asked Harry Cohn for the loan of some of Columbia's make-up people. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Trivia

In 1973 Rita Hayworth said, "As far as I know it bombed. I never made a cent out of it but at one time I did have a print of it which I thought might interest Yasmin (her daughter) when she was old enough to understand it. I suppose I still have it around....somewhere...." See more »

Life of a princess: Rita Hayworth
27 March 2003 | by (Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain) – See all my reviews

Married with the famous prince Ali Khan, the beautiful superstar Rita Hayworth shows us some things of her real life in company of her husband, her emotions, her daughter Yazmine, her life as actrees and her life as princess is very curious. This extrange movie is very difficult to see, it only has been exhibited in some festivals of cinema, like Cannes. We can to see in "Champagne Safari" how love the real person who was the exciting Rita Hayworth!!!
