A man called Major is in Cairo after being released from a German Prison. He is there to proceed with his plan to steal the jewelry from the King Tutankhamen exhibit at the national gallery. This plan has been on hold since he was jailed. He enlists the help of Willy, Ali, Nicodemos, Kerim and Kuchuk to carry out his detailed 'foolproof' plan. Perhaps the curse of the Pharoahs is more than a superstition because Major soon finds out that while the robbery may be easy, getting out with the jewels may be the hardest part. Written by

A surprisingly unenthusiastic piece, which should be a thriller but manages to seem only to go through the motions.
There is a certain amount of visual excitement and atmosphere in the bazaars of Cairo and the scenes between Sanders and Eric Pohlmann are interesting, but there is a somewhat detached feel to the theft itself, where it should be suspenseful.
Richard Johnson is an extraordinary choice for the part of Arab Ali Hassan. Even in black and white, his appearance is not that of an Arab and his accent is very English.
While not terrible, this film fails to excite much and is probably best ignored unless you have an academic interest.
