Based on historical deeds about Pharaoh Amenophis IV and his wife Nefertiti
The film centers about Amenhotep IV (Amadeo Nazzari) son of Amenophis III who reigned Egypt . Amenhotep IV was crowned in Thebes and there he started a building program and a new religion . He married Nefertiti (Jeanne Crain) who loved Tutmes (Edmund Purdom) , sculptor who made the famous bust from her . Akhenaten tried to bring about a departure from traditional religion, yet in the end it would not be accepted . After his death, traditional religious practice was gradually restored .
It's a slice of ancient history set in 1300 B.C : Amenophis IV is known as Akhenaten or Akhenaton , he was proclaimed maximum priest imposing a sole and only God : ¨Aton¨ or God Sun , pitting the priests (Vincent Price) followers of ¨Amon Ra¨ . Marriage between Amenophis and Nefertiti would born Tutankhamon . Amenophis created a new city called Ajetaton or Amarna . Set design is breathtaking and Carlo Rustichelli's music is excellent. Jeanne Crain is beautiful , Vincent Price , as always , plays very well a villain person . There are several secondaries and good Italians actors seen in Peplum or Sword and Sandals genre : Alberto Farnese , Liana Orfei , Umberto Raho, Ralph Baldasarre , among others . Spellbound color cinematography ensure the glowing spectacle . The movie gets likeness to 'Sinuhe the Egyptian' but lack luster and budget . Rating: 6 points/10
