Based on historical deeds about Pharaoh Amenophis IV and Nefertiti
The film centers about Amenophis IV(Amadeo Nazzari) son of Amenophis III who reigned in Egypt. He was married to Nefertiti(Jeanne Crain) which loved Tutmes(Edmund Purdom), sculptor who made the famous bust from her.
Amenophis IV imposed sole and only one God : ¨Aton¨ or God Sun, pitting to the priests(Vincent Price)followers of ¨Amon Ra¨. Marriage between Amenophis and Nefertiti would born Tutankhamon. 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. The movie gets likeness to 'Sinuhe the Egyptian' but lack luster and budget. Rating: 6 points/10
