Goofs

When buying the donkey, Chapman mentions the boy's name. However the boy's name is never mentioned and Chapman doesn't ask the boy his name. So there was no way of him knowing what it was. See more »

Quotes

Nicholas Chapman: [as he approaches Dr. Burnet, who is busy inspecting a serious crack on an ancient Roman statue] I brought back a statue from Peru one time, that got banged up like that. They told me, "One more crack like that and you're fired."

A treasure-hunt movie worth seeing
26 June 2001 | by (Azusa, CA) – See all my reviews

This movie has not been seen anywhere for several years (that I am aware of. The story deals with an archaeologist's passion to find a fabulous golden mask thought to be buried in a Roman tomb. The hunt begins in Rome and ends in the sands of Africa.The pursuers of the mask range in character from good to evil. The movie rather reminded me of the movie,Treasure of the Sierra Madre. Both are in black and white, dealing with greed and the consequences of greed.The flavor of this movie was interesting to me. The rather bleak desert locations were more than made-up for by the depiction of the local tribes and their customs. Unfortunately for this movie, the background music was seriously overdone, almost detracting from it. I find this to be the case often with early European movies. However, if you enjoy treasure hunts and ancient history somewhat fictionalized, this is a treasure hunt movie worth seeing. I'd like to see it again.
