"The goddess of nature was especially generous to you."
Middling Italian/American sword & sandal flick based on the biblical story of Esther. Jewish Esther (Joan Collins) marries Persian King Ahaseurus (Richard Egan) to help her people and falls in love with him. Collins playing a 'good girl' is amusing. Look out for sexy Daniela Rocca's dance scene. Have mercy! Definitely the movie's highlight. All of the men in the movie are forgettable. Overlong and dull, it should appeal mostly to those into biblical movies or Italian sword & sandal movies from the '60s. Mario Bava is cinematographer and co-director on this. The other director is the great Raoul Walsh, who also produced and co-wrote it. Pretty blah stuff.
