Hard-boiled archeologist Mark Brandon is searching for ancient tombs in Egypt when he is approached by beautiful Ann Mercedes, who convinces him to help her fulfill her deceased father's life's ambition - to provide solid proof of the biblical Joseph's travels in ancient Egypt. As an ex-pupil of Ann's father Mark accepts and the two embark on a search for the tomb of the Pharoah Ra Hotep, said to have had some connection with Joseph.

Good Story, Great Scenery, and a Classic Fist-Fight
Robert Taylor and Eleanor Parker as turn-of-the-century archaeologists in Egypt make a handsome couple in this beautifully-photographed MGM production. Their hunt for a pharaoh's lost tomb and their growing attraction to each other provide a number of good moments but the real stars here are the monuments of Egypt -- including a visit to St. Catherine's Monastery in the Sinai. The rousing fist-fight between Robert Taylor and Carlos Thompson on the crown of one of the Abu Simbel statues is a glorious moment.
