The Elixir of Life
12 March 2012 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Back when Robert Taylor was with MGM he did another Egypt story with Valley Of The Kings. That one will never be ranked as one of his best films, but it was a well made action/adventure story with Taylor an archaeologist who could have been Indiana Jones's grandfather. But in his last years Taylor did a lot of mediocre stuff for the big screen and his career hit rock bottom with The Glass Sphinx, also set in Egypt and also where he is an archaeologist.

This time Taylor has Gianna Serra as a niece to help him out and he's on a mission to find the tomb of a Pharaoh who is supposed to have lived for 200 years. King Naposis supposedly took the secret which was a magic elixir of life in his tomb, undiscovered like Tutankhamen's. It's encased in a Glass Sphinx that was buried with the Pharaoh.

But others working for Taylor like Anita Ekberg and Angel Del Pozo have a whole different agenda going. Therein lies the tale.

The DVD I saw of The Glass Sphinx shows it's in need of restoration as the color was pretty washed out. But I'm betting the Taylor children aren't thrilled with this film and ain't likely to get behind anything that would show their father in a bad light.

And I have to say Taylor pretty much walked through this one. He got a trip to Egypt and a pay day and that's about it. The rest of the cast pretty much did the same thing.

Some nice aerial shots of Egypt in the Nile valley and the Suez Canal which probably looked good in color when the film first came out is all I can really recommend with The Glass Sphinx.
