Trivia

After being rescued by Jeffrey Hunter and his men, Debra Paget and the heroes jump into the river to escape. Miss Paget's short dress inflated with air when she jumped from a high wall into the water below, feet first. Watch for a brief scene in which she pops back up to the surface - upside down. You can see her feet kicking near the surface of the water next to the wet fabric of her inflated dress. See more »

Debra Paget and Jeffery Hunter: Just Beautiful!
15 November 2003 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Two of the best looking stars in Hollywood, Debra Paget and Jeffrey Hunter burn up the screen in "Princess of the Nile." It's not much of a movie, but if you love looking at God's most gorgeous, feast your eyes on these two! Technicolor never had it so good.

Miss Paget should have had a longer career. She appeared in some landmark films like "The Ten Commandments," "Love Me Tender," "White Feather," "Demetrius and the Gladiators," etc. Her ultra lewd dance in "Princess...Nile" is the most erotic in the history of films! At the same time, Jane Russell was also getting censored for her hip-shaking dance in "The French Line."
