So Bad, It's Wonderful!
10 November 1998 | by (Oakland, CA USA) – See all my reviews

I first saw this movie as a Saturday

Matinee, at the Crest Theater in Portland,

OR. I adored it -- it had the

incomparable Debra Paget doing her

patented hip-wiggling Exotic Maiden role,

evil villains, secret passages, secret

identities, 50's-style exotic scenery and

costumes -- the works. I'd love to have

it on video, but as a hootch-cootchy

adventure flick it's not likely to be

available soon, if at all. What a shame!
