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.
